As Facebook steadily declines in social media rankings, the What's the Next Facebook infographic investigates to see which platform will take the reins next. Though Facebook was once the reigning champion of social media outlets, its popularity has been slowly declining due to the disappointing IPO release and privacy issues users are constantly experiencing. With competitive sites like Twitter and LinkedIn hot on its tail and other challengers like Yahoo, AOL and Google Plus, it's only a matter of time before they oust the social networking site.

The What's the Next Facebook infographic does not crown a winner, but presents the information via its rankings based on public information and timelines from each platform. While the average visits per minute for other sites cannot compare to Facebook's, the dominating domain cannot hold the position much longer unless it fixes some of the kinks in the system.
