I’ve been reading an interesting article by Chrys Bader this morning, discussing ‘the end of the Facebook era’. It’s very interesting and one that we’re all aware of, even subconsciously. Facebook has declining numbers, teens are not so active as they were, our Facebook networks are becoming saturated and for teens in particular they’re becoming increasingly sensitive about what they share, especially when they know their parents are lurking around.
This article goes on though after discussing the why’s and therefore’s, it discusses the public company’s financial status and the ability to ‘buy cool’, such as they did with Instagram.
It’s interesting and poignant to read and digest the social network shifts that are around right now and probably will continue to be for many years to come.
