The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.

Facebook only just recently went public, and now analysts are talking about its inevitable demise. One argument that is being floated is that Facebook doesn't have mobile in its DNA, and therefore will become irrelevant as that trend picks up steam. David and John are somewhat skeptical of the doom-and-gloom crowd, and feel that Facebook has the talent and the platform to adapt to the changing realities of the marketplace. Five years isn't all that long of a time, so they'll be revisiting this topic in order to hold those analysts accountable for their "predictions."

Big tech names might gather a lot of investor attention, but the truth is they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology.
