The death of social media- 3 possibilities

I read an article recently that stated that the economy was doing much better and people were leaving social media because they were actually busy making money now. It went on and on how social media will still be around but as people are using Twitter and Facebook less as they get on with real business, it will decline even more.
Now let me say that I agree with this but there will have to be a set of events or conditions that happen that will make social media decline. Here they are:

1. All social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and others will have to cease to exist.
2. The internet will no longer exist.

Or trumping both of those- An asteroid the size of Earth hits the Earth and wipes out everything.

So there, I agree as long as the above conditions happen then social media will decline and/or disappear.

Update:

Just checked-  "In fact, as best as we can tell, no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years."http://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/sl9/back2.html

So I guess it will have to be #1 or #2. That's probably as likely as marketing and advertising going away too.
