Facebook Is Dead

Facebook may not know it yet, but it is dead.

It’s the condemned man;

it’s the walking dead;

it’s plugged in to the machine that goes bing.

It’s only just started having a little thrash around as the rage against the dying of the light starts to simmer, but if you look closely, you can see the signs.

Unless there is a miracle cure, Facebook will not be here by the end of the 2020s, maybe the mid-2020s, possibly even the early 2020s.

Web declines have historically been precipitous, swift and terminal.

Read why Facebook is dead now.
