Wired: "Anthropologist Daniel Miller has been studying British teens, and he has a dire message for Facebook: The social network is “dead and buried” to Britain’s 16-to-18-year-olds because they’re “embarrassed even to be associated with it.”"
Looks like it's losing the charm. Remember MySpace! FB may meet the same fate.
It's unlikely that facebook suffers the same fate as MySpace.. and the reason lies in the leadership. Facebook is a lot smarter then people think, that's why they tried to buy snap-chat, because they see the holes in their armor -- MySpace never did. Right now these teens are not really a big deal, but as the trend continues it will be... But Facebook won't let that happen they will find a way to grab those consumers when they become adults by making the service more invaluable -- right now it's not but facebook see's the bigger picture... Right now a few teens not using the service is not going to put a dent in the Facebook numbers.. (So were a long way from facebook becoming MySpace)
Hmm, great point there. They also bought Instagram. I see the strategy, it's completely different from MySpace's.
Well, Facebook's 'problem' is that EVERYONE is on it, and as a teenager, you really don't want to share such an online existence with your grandpa and mother, while at the same time you 'like' every picture of that cute 15 year old from your class... ;)
Once the PS4 allows me to save recordings to an external drive, I can finally say "F YOU" facebook and delete my account :P
So you can put it on youtube? good luck without getting copyright acclaims.
Not had one yet, I've had a video of Resogun up ever since the 29th November :P Youtube can do shove it with that crap ;)
Facebook may fade but I doubt it will die its too usefull. Yes everyone is on it and that can make awkward things but as a finding tool its second to none Looking for that forl from elementary school try face book. Its a gateway
Teens were good for the start and gave it Publicity boost. Now they want money and that's not in the teens boat . start targeting the $$$ people and companies .
facebook will only be forgotten once it gets a replacement with another big social network.
