Despite the fact that many believe that Facebook newsfeed content is predictable. For example, users in their teens and twenties share lots photos of themselves in nightclubs, users in their 30 share photos of their marriages and newborns and users in their 40s look for pictures of their friend’s aging children, Facebook has revolutionized the way that users CONNECT with one another and empowers users to SHARE with friends. No other service does this as well as Facebook. Twitter exists and has it’s own purpose. Twitter is the epitome of an interest graph. Twitter allows users to follow new interests or drop old interests effortlessly. Anyone who claims that Facebook is becoming boring is not being a proactive enough user to share photos and update their statuses with thoughts, quotes and beleifs. “Only boring people get bored” and I truly believe that. Re-evaluating friends and networking to find new and interesting friends who are proactive users sharing meaningful content will revitalize the facebook experience for users. As stated earlier, Twitter has it’s purpose but cannot replace Facebook and MySpace was a flop. What else can users ask for? I truly suggest for users to become more active with their accounts and re-evaluate friends BEFORE complaining about boredom with Facebook. Social media sites DO bring people together. Users cannot rely on facebook to physically connect people involuntarily. Users must live their lives and be proactive enough to engage friends, family and others well enough in person to be able to cherish the content shared on social media websites like facebook. Once again, only boring people get bored.
