I’ve seen many forecasts like this posted since answering a similar Quora question last week. But few with so little fanfare (and believable accuracy) as this one on Hootsuite.
Written by Hootsuite’s CEO, Ryan Holmes, it portends a Dystopian social media future:

“a smart fridge that tracks your Facebook Events, sees you’re planning a party and how many people have RSVP’d and alerts you to make a beer run”
