The Decline of Facebook
Facebook has been around since many of the people who use it can remember. For me, it was right around the time I was beginning college and I couldn’t wait to get a college email so that i could use it. I was already tired of MySpace by the age of 16 but I just “had” to use it to be cool. MySpace is something that is rarely talked about these days but it once was one of the highest visited sites in the world. Before Facebook and MySpace was Friendster, another social media site that is now pushed to the side.
Before everyone was using Google to search their favorite things, people were using AOL and Yahoo to find what they needed. Everything from email to shopping. There was even instant messaging or “IM” which is pretty much what Facebook chat is. You could chat with your friends instead of emailing them. This was on the things that helped AOL reach the top, along with email and chat. Now how does Facebook compare to Myspace and some of the other internet giants that have come before it? Could they end up like Myspace? If so, who’s next to take over?
This infographic takes a look at some of the internet giants that have come before Facebook, how they got started, where they are now and how they ended.
