The Problem With Facebook

Facebook stands in contrast to other social media like Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram where all content is shared with all followers …treating all entities on FB site as advertisers and charging them to share their content… This business plan backfires

I can’t agree more with the assertions in this video from  2veritasium. If we think this is bad, wait till the auto-play videos on pages they are going to launch later this year appear. I can’t help but be reminded of MySpace background music and how much we hated those pages.

My prediction is FB will never go away just rot. Most people will keep their accounts and slowly replace their FB daily activity with a collection of other social media to communicate around Facebook itself.
