The conclusion: Depending on whether Facebook stays popular, the answer is either in the 2060s or the 2130s.
The blogger writes, "Based on the site's growth rate, and the age breakdown of their users over time,there are probably 10 to 20 million people who created Facebook profiles who have since died."
Looking down the road, the blogger writes, "About 290,000 US Facebook users will die (or have died) in 2013. The worldwide total for 2013 is likely several million. In just seven years, this death rate will double, and in seven more years it will double again."
