"I'm surprised it has taken this long. You only have to go on the train and look around at people's phones to see that the world has moved onto vertical videos and highly visual platforms like TikTok and Instagram Reels. 'Core' Facebook has become a victim of its own success. It's now so flooded with ads and strange comments from your distant great auntie that most people don't engage with it like they used to. Luckily for Zuck he also owns Instagram so I'm sure he'll be ok."
"Unless Facebook pivots or focuses on some smart acquisitions to attract a younger audience, there will be more and more users asking themselves, 'Should I delete it?' It just no longer wields the extraordinary power it once did."
