Subject: The end of Social Media is coming at the end of this decade.

Written By: TimeWarp on 12/21/13 at 7:11 pm

We have Foursquare,Pintrest,Facebook,Snapchat,Twitter,NewMyspace,Vine,instagram,Kik,tumblr,etc etc etc


At the end of this decade social media will become the LOL " Did I use that?"

Facebooks user demos is decreasing every year, Teens were polled recently whether Facebook
was cool or not and most of the teens replied with "it is for old people".




The internet & Youtube aren't going anywhere,however all of these social networks
will end up in the trash. Alot of social networks are just useless words with no real
substance behind it. There is already a growing angst against social networking.
Facebook is ingrained into our culture however that doesn't mean it won't go the way
of AOL AIM. This year in I have been seeing people delete their facebook one
by one. It is becoming a trend.

And being replaced by what. Something as innovative and massive as the whole social media industry doesn't just die without something replacing it.

Be replaced by talking to people the "old-fashioned" way. Or talking to people through websites (like blog websites that allow comments).

The point of social media is the social aspect of it. There is nothing that "social" about blogs.

They'll actually visit each other in their homes or at parties, outings, etc.  And talk face to face.

If someone makes a blog post and people leave comments, it can be social.  How would that be any less "social" than someone making a Facebook status and people replying to it?

Because Facebook is designed for that. Blogs are not nearly as interactive as Facebook.

In 2013, they may not be. But in the following years, blogs could go through a form of "upgrade" to make them interactive like Facebook.

Social media will become obsolete once they invent teleportation devices so you can meet anyone in the world face-to-face.
