    Facebook is international, also have you been on marketplace, everyone is buying and selling on there.

    Like I said Facebook is not going anywhere.

    Ain’t going nowhere. Nothing has been rolled out that’s new and interesting enough to take its place and even if something was, zuckerberg would just buy it and shut it down.

    In all fairness, some of us never used it even when it was a thing.

    Me either. Facetube will only continue to exists in the same way Craigslist exists. It will linger but other will eat into its market share.

    I am curious to see the daily active user by age data.

    It's people like my wife. My guess is the median age on it is now in the mid 40's probably closer to 50.

    Historically, hugely successful companies seem to be unseated by new players who leverage an entirely new technological paradigm. Not new entrants trying to build a slightly better mousetrap.

    The various stages retail has gone through are a good example. Facebook has moved to the classic rent seeking phase of its life. They won’t innovate, and will just serve as a parasitic entity sucking out the lifeblood of society until the day we take some national horse dewormer.

    You can easily see this by its attempts at regulatory capture and its effective integration with the state.

    Venom is right, it’ll continue to linger but continually lose market share even if revenue continues to grow. I don’t believe the death knell will be sounded by other social media companies per se. Besides the primary purpose of disassociating from the toxic Facebook brand, Facebook’s push into AR/VR is probably a recognition of that fact and an attempt to grow in a completely different market.

    It’ll be something entirely new that’ll finally kill Facebook, most likely social media platforms developed on top of blockchain that free the platform from central authority and make censorship next to impossible. This technology already exists and is in use, the adoption rate is just low so far.

    They should've renamed it 'MyGrandKidsPictures' to appeal to their core demographic.

    Point taken, but I want to be pedantic for a minute. I don’t know that he ever said that. Even if he did, in context of the needs of the day he might’ve even been right. The Apollo Guidance Computer also got us to the moon with 2KB of RAM and 32KB of ROM. 640K can support some very advanced applications if you aren’t writing software like today’s bloatware.

    You people are funny. No matter how you feel about Facebook, to say that they don’t innovate is just ridiculous. Just because your user experience hasn’t changed much (in your eyes) doesn’t mean the company isn’t at the forefront of technological innovation and AI research. The metaverse is the future. The first company to roll out a full blown immersive universe is going to rule the world. Facebook is trying to make sure they are the ones that do it.

    They got more money than they know what to do with, this is just some marketing gimmick, what happened to them immersive goggles we were all supposed to wear.
