Is Facebook dying off?

I have not been on there in a long time. I decided to login just to see what it looks like these days. Nothing like I remember. All but 2 people on my friends list have been inactive for months or even years. The two people who are still active is a friend I had in college who mostly just talks with family and someone I met through an ex, I don't even remember him all that much. 

I know there are still a lot of people on the platform, but do you think it is started to die off as a whole?

Maybe? 

I really don't know. I am not on the platform and I don't know if anyone I know uses it. It isn't something we talk about. I am sure some people in my family still make use of it. Not very many though.

I think in certain areas it is. I would say in America it certainly is. No one I know uses it anymore. People have moved on to using other social platforms or just skipped them entirely in favor of using Discord and other messaging software/apps.

Both Facebook and Twitter seem to be dying, but I think Twitter is dying faster. The reason for that is because Facebook are making an effort to appeal to the younger generation, which is why they're trying to make Instagram and FB stories into a platform where you can post longer videos, whereas Twitter has always been about short, snappy messages that people can easily read in the time it takes them to scroll down their feed.

I really don't know. I can't see any of these social media giants going away anytime soon. I would guess that they will all keep trying to adapt. I do know that the younger people tend to not sign up for Facebook, Twitter, or even Instagram. They all use SnapChat, TikTok, Discord, and the like.

Facebook is still very active. I think they lost a lot of younger users but they will try to appeal to them through VR technology in the coming years.

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the like are all backed by government funding. Well, maybe not Twitter anymore lol - that being said, they will only die off if the government stops funding them or if enough people stop using them.

Social media isn't going anywhere. Be it Facebook or otherwise. People are too addicted to them and even if Facebook lost half of its user base, it would still be heavily populated.
