IT World - Sure, it's got nearly a billion members. But I for one am dealing with a serious case of Facebook burnout. And I know I'm not alone.
I'm surprised it still haven't.
casuals are just discovering the internet + summers over it happens every year also once new features get added to fb again it becomes active. wait till Halloween and this article wont seem relevant
Yes....yes it is
Twitter will almost dominate. It may not be on top but they've been around since 2004 and they are still effective as day 1. My favourite social network as it stands. It also comes down to who you follow and how interactive you are with your peers. As for Facebook, content is so irrelevant these days. I guess because everyone has backed off, it's less and less interactive.
Its not a matter of if but when Facebook dies out. We might see a sudden decline in active users like it happened to Orkut and MySpace.
I hate it how Facebook tracks visitors, they are worst than Tracking Cookies. I accessed Facebook from my Android device and now they send me notifications on my cell number without authorization. I haven't even provided them with my mobile number.
I don't remember how long it took MySpace to die out, but hopefully Facebook is near its end sooner than later.
Facebook won't go away that easily. I have many friends I only get to contact from Facebook (family members from out of the country and long lost friends) unless you don't have any important people in your life you would wish Facebook to die but it wont for the other millions :P There's no better alternative so you won't see it DYING unless SOMETHING really better but I don't see it coming anytime soon.
Facebook is far from dying. I've personally noticed an increase in people joining. Also as mentioned above, it's the end of summer and since people are going to be indoors more it will only become more active. Only time will tell though.
The trouble with Facebook is two fold. Let me explain. First of all people enjoyed communicating with people they may have lost touch with, the updates were sometimes funny you could barely go a day without someone saying "did you see what so and so put on Facebook it was well funny" This is where the problems start, because then someone gets offended and company's get involved people start losing their jobs or getting taken to court for posting things which others deem offensive. (some will always go too far) Now we are at a point where nobody dare post anything anymore for fear of ridicule or embarrassment and the interaction has become dead. And finally the other death knell for me is these posts that seem to originate from nobody but yet have half a million likes and twenty thousand comments, pictures of soldiers holding their new born son before heading off to war, children born with severe disabilities or a dog left to rot in a wheelie bin. The pictures I can handle, even the comments but it's this bit that rubs me up the wrong way and makes me click out of Facebook, the "like this if you care" or 1 like = you care" fishing for likes using other peoples misery is my new pet hate in the world right now, and it's totally flooding my newsfeed as people who feel they have to do this in order to be a good person keep clicking like spreading the wildfire even further. And who actually posts these articles, there's never a name, is it Facebook themselves??
