> recently some kids seriously asked me what Facebook even is. As far as I'm concerned it's dead and I wonder how they are still even making any money?

This[0] is how they make money. 2.41 billion monthly active users.

"Active users are those which have logged in to Facebook during the last 30 days."

Advertising on Facebook seems to be also very profitable (at least that's what I read several times). I don't use Facebook, however, it's still a thing. Saying it's dead is blind.
