The Fading of Facebook

Well, Kylie Jenner certainly set the cat amongst the pigeons a few days ago, when she sent out this tweet…

That one tweet cost Snapchat $1.7 billion on the share market (which just goes to show how nebulous social media businesses are).

It’s not just Snapchat taking a hit at the moment. That tweet has led many media peeps to speculate on social media in general and several commentators have pointed out the declining relevance of Facebook, particularly amongst the young.

Tastes change. Which would be this card…
