Why people are leaving Facebook

Facebook is the big dog on the block when it comes to social media, but in the past year or two they've seen the younger generations starting to stray away and move to other social media platforms. Obviously at this point Facebook has a bigger enough user base to survive easily, but the trend to move to other "less public" social media services is a trend that will need to be addressed. Medium looks at why people are leaving Facebook and tries to figure out where it went wrong.

I open my Facebook app and a stream of my most recent photos slides smoothly into my status box. Facebook doesn’t need to say it, I already know what it’s asking.

“Please, please share one of these photos. Share something, anything.”

Can’t you smell the whiff of desperation?
