I personally believe the SSD can last much longer than traditional platter HDs, but in general, if they both survive the first year of use (over that hurdle of manufacturer defect), you're sure to get great use of either for several years.
Now flash drives are cheaper than SSDs for a reason. They are two different flash animals, it seems to me. I would expect a $20, 8GB thumb drive to fail far sooner than an 8GB SSD. Manufacturing processes and design are just different - and meant for different application on a computer. Casual storage is one thing. Constant read and write is another. I don't think you can equate failures of thumb flash drives to SSD failures.
