Faceboook is not designed for e-commerce. Like was mentioned, say you are selling cookies online with facebook. Their ad system will automatically display ads for all the other cookie sellers on your page. Not very wise, right?

Facebook is only a tool to promote your business and I must say, a powerful tool

Social Networking is a great way to get some more publicity for your company but to over run websites, I doubt it. I believe Facebook is more for the "non-experienced" website makers on the web, and those gossipers. Having your own .com website with a unique design will always be better than having a Facebook page for your website. But I can see Facebook creating a website builder for your website and a .com with it, in the future.

I agree. I don't see real companies abandoning thier web sites in favor of facebook. It's a nice addon not a replacement.

Not everyone uses Facebook...
I also hate the idea of one company controlling everything

It completely depends upon your business type but a web site can really boost it up, whatever the business is.

Facebook is a good platform for marketing, so one should be using it as a tool for marketing.

Hi

To very honest, face-book or other social networking sites are only for a fun and nothing else. However, I am also using social networking sites specially Face-book for a marketing purpose ONLY

I wish I knew how to setup social networking to promote my business on Facebook and Twitter and all them.

I am not understand how people can make this work without pumping tons of money into the Ad posting type of Advertisement.

Facebook is emerging as an important part of SEO. But, it is just a part of SEO. There are many other thing that needs to be done to promote the business online. You may promote your business on Facebook, but without a website it becomes difficult. People would want to know more about you and your business and that is not possible on Facebook. That is possible only through a website. You wont have to tell everything about you business on the Facebook or any other social media site. Just inform people about your website, and the rest will be done by your site.

Facebook can be said as a entry point for such newbies to the ecommerce, it will definitely make them want to create a dedicated site for selling their products/services.
So to the contrary i would say facebook nurtures the webhosting industry by raising the awareness of having a website.

What exactly does Facebook have to do with SEO? Traffic and brand recognition, yes. But SEO?

To end the websites? No I do not think so. Social networks are just means of communication.

Well it should be restated, facebook is a good place for advertising your product but you will always need your own website.

What the lady said is like: Google is the death for all searches.

Now Facebook has a lot of people and advertising with them is quite an advantage.
Still they did not got over Google!
I'm saying: it's just a good site to advertise ... but the rest is still there and working.
Did the online dating sites killed the dates in the real world?
