Facebook Adds Food Ordering

I kinda like the thought that I can order my dinner through Facebook (if I was in the US).

Although, I’m not so sure I want Facebook knowing what I have for dinner – that’s Insta, so maybe the same thing, ultimately.

Facebook is continuing its slow turn into WeChat. It has way more users, but much less “complete life” functionality. It must wish it could own that much data about its users.

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.
