I've been wondering for a while why all the press about
#Facebook treats it like a massively powerful brainwashing machine while I felt to me more like a slowly dying forum being eaten up by spam and morons and really only used by old people now.
Someone at the NYT agrees.
> "Facebook is in trouble. Not financial trouble, or legal trouble, or even senators-yelling-at-Mark-Zuckerberg trouble. What I’m talking about is a kind of slow, steady decline that anyone who has ever seen a dying company up close can recognize."
Looks like a dying internet-forum, certainly.
> "The truth is that Facebook’s thirst for young users is less about dominating a new market and more about staving off irrelevance. Facebook use among teenagers in the United States has been declining for years, and is expected to plummet even further "
#Boomerbook they should call it. The kids are somewhere more fun.
A gateway into the global open conversation in the fediverse for Boing folks and anyone they know.
