Alright folks, I’m calling it.
It’s quite sad, but as of 6pm Pacific on Feb 21, 2018, Facebook is officially over.
Soon it will join the ranks of MySpace, Friendster, Slashdot, Digg, Orkut, and Google+ as dusty old sites that nobody really uses anymore.
It had a good run.
For a while, it was the perfect way to keep in touch with friends and relatives, but somewhere along the line, it lost its way.
And unfortunately, I don’t see a simple way back.
Let’s hope they can prove me wrong.
But otherwise, I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next.
What is next? Twitter? Snapchat? Instagram? I feel like they’re all mostly dead too.
What’s coming down the pipeline to help us all connect online?
Or are we all slowly moving back to our smaller, more manageable offline groups?
RIP Facebook, 2004-2018
