Analyst: Facebook Will Disappear in 5 to 8 Years

Facebook will lose dominance as a major web company in less than a decade, Eric Jackson, founder of Ironfire Capital said Monday on CNBC's Squawk on the Street.

"In five to eight years they are going to disappear in the way that Yahoo has disappeared," Jackson said. "Yahoo is still making money, it's still profitable, still has 13,000 employees working for it, but it's 10 percent of the value that it was at the height of 2000. For all intents and purposes, it's disappeared."

Facebook is down 27% from its IPO price of $38, making it the biggest two week loss of any IPO since 1995. Eric Jackson, founder of Ironfire Capital.
