    I have noticed a decrease in posters to the various Facebook pages I visit regularly, has anyone else?

    First of all it was the various forums I visited including my own which went down the gurgler [not Property Chat obviously] when facebook became popular. There was a facebook page for everything, then the various pages became centralised and the smaller ones disappeared, now I can see further cannibalisation - where is it going to end?

    Cant see twitter etc taking over, maybe the forums will become popular again ... :eek:

    Whatever it will be will be left dominated/controlled like the rest and therefore continue the bias that has divided society thus far ensuring more and more are brainwashed into socialism/communism. The censoring is terribly unfair, enacted by those who claim they are fair minded folk yet shut down (literally) any opinion that does not align with theirs.
    IMHO.

    It's re-branded Music.ly.

    Facebook won't be going away, it's used more by Gen X than any other generation, the kids don't use it, they are more into quick post apps like Insta and Snapchat (and now TikTok).

    Facebook has a part of the market that will always be around, it's for the slightly larger things than the other platforms. Longer posts, forum type pages, bulk photo bucketing.

    It's not like there was anything before it that everyone thought would never go away *Cough* MySpace *Cough* ;)

    YouTube, twitter and Facebook merge to become You Twit Face (ok old joke). But seriously a number of my older teenage kids friends don't even use email - it's all instant messaging - snapchat included.

    My 18 year old son - and many of his school year (VCE) are no longer using Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
    Maybe indicative of that ageage group?

    Most people my age are fading off FB also.. It's just junk these days, people who used to post all the time no longer bother.

    Agreed - it was great for business when it wasn't swamped with "sponsored" posts - and personally it's starting to feel like a chore ... messenger is still good tho

    Once you dismiss all the claims of all the conspiracy theorists ,then i think as this was talked about ten years ago there will come a stage where people will just become un-linked..

    I don't know if it will be the next big thing in social media, but give it 10-15 years and perhaps the most popular form of social media will be via decentralised protocol(s).

    You will publish your content to the network with specific permissions.

    Centrally owned websites may choose to publish your content (based on permission you set and assuming your content conforms to their rules).

    Perhaps it will be something more like Mastodon, which already exists, but is still a fringe platform.

    Not many would have the capacity to look beyond the horizon and to look forward much the same as anyone in business understood the value of a mobile phone as soon as it came out..

    Last night we - shock horror - at the suggestion of Junior - had a family board game night.

    All screens (except for the online dictionary for Scrabble) was off. Felt odd but very nice

    @Jack: Twitter is funding a small independent team of up to five open source architects, engineers, and designers to develop an open and decentralized standard for social media. The goal is for Twitter to ultimately be a client of this standard.

    Facebook is good for groups, its still the most used, also anything decent gets to size big enough facebook will just buy it anyway - see insta and whats app.

    Youtube probably is the most sustainable after twitch (do they even count as social media) long term wise because they pay content creators.

    I wasn't aware of this article prior, but I think it captures a possible future direction of social media: Protocols, Not Platforms: A Technological Approach to Free Speech

    Maybe it will arrive sooner than I thought. I have begun working with a developer on one version of such a protocol / framework :), sitting on top of your favourite crypto @albanga ;)

It seems that the levelling out of property price rises hasn’t deterred celebrities from investment properties. Nicole has bought her fifth apartment in a complex in Milsons Point in Sydney. This article explains why she may have done that.
