I’m ceo & co-founder of a company that hopes to take a big chunk of marketshare from Facebook, Twitter & Reddit. I deleted my Facebook a long time ago and I have also noticed that many of my friends have done the same. But that’s obviously just anecdotal. A personal speculation.
I’m in the middle of fundraising an angel/seed round for my company right now and I’d like to be able to share some proof point about how Facebook is (1) walking away from the news/media industry (2) struggling with a much larger existential crisis.
Does such proof exist? Anybody else working on a platform to compete with fb, twitter, reddit?
I got on Facebook before college and it dominated some aspects of my life for almost a decade. I’m staking my career on the fact that more and more people are going to wake up to the fact that the entire experience (like/share roulette via “news” feed) is an empty, meaningless way to spend time.
