Calling time on certain social media sites

Amol Rajan wrote an argument in February to say Facebook has ‘peaked’. You can read it here:

So, what do we think?

  • Still relevant but less so

NB I am very much aware people are no longer on these sites. No points will be awarded.

I mean if Facebook is finished but Instagram is fine what does that mean?

used to think twitter was fine but was back on it yesterday for the first time in ages and they’re really doing their best to fuck it up

Are we voting for whether it’s relevant globally, or in the UK, or amongst the trendsetters?

Piczo was good wasn’t it

Whatever context you want.

Although I didn’t write this in the opening post, I am coming round to the idea that the age of social media is in an advanced stage and perhaps something will replace it (probably not soon)

It’s been a while since I scrolled through my feed and thought ‘this is a good use of my time’.

Instagram seems the most insidious.

For me, it’s the the one with the shortest gap between user and advertiser. Practically every other post outside your feed is trying to flog you something. Also, your mum is on it now

It means that Facebook isn’t just social media - it’s actual infrastructure

They also own WhatsApp & lots of other stuff
