Many Australians are giving Facebook away as the service is actually in decline in the most import age group.

Not an Australian article but this is a well known phenomenon

https://www.cnbc.com/2017/08/22/facebook-may-have-a-grown-up-problem-young-people-leaving-for-instagram-and-snapchat.html

Problem is that FB is listed on the stock exchange and it needs to make $$$ to provide returns for investors. If younger people are not using it and some older users (anecdotally) are leaving then they will end up with a big problem a bit like News Corp did with MySpace

Wow so young 20 somethings and Teens are Supposedly moving to the instant gratification platforms of Twatter and crapchat,Hardly news at all as they have been all over those platforms since they started,Meanwhile Adults and older people have been a steady source of membership for FB which is hardly in decline at all.

The point is existing users getting older, new users not coming on board in sufficient numbers = flawed business model.

Simples.

Care to show actual numbers to back up your assertions about FB being a failing business case or would you just like to continue grasping at straws without any factual evidence of FB failing.
Funny how i cannot find anything close to your most strange assertions anywhere on the web.

I think the theory is that once us older ones fall of our perches no one will be replacing us from younger generations. Also the theory is that our demographic will eventually reach saturation with no growth as there are very few multi billionaires that will have kids in their 80s.

However the theory has a flaw in that it assumes that FB will remain static like Myspace and not evolve or acquire other platforms to to generate growth. That has been one difference between FB and the other failed social media platforms is that FB is not adverse from evolving.

I think Twitter was heading downhill until the current POTUS has raised its profile for use. Hence its recent change to double its character restrictions and generally Twitter users tend to be pollies, journalists and celebs. The growth is for instagram or snapchate, these are the growth models. However will they survive and evolve will be interesting as I am sure new "in" platforms will arrive for the following generation and grab their growth. It is simply a fact of life of modern social media.

FB has become my defacto photo album, especially while travelling as an expat. And yes it therefore makes it easy to share with friends and family although my parents, my wife's parents and a close friend are not on FB. I do however detest how FB has changed in recent times, becoming a political platform for many for which I'm slowly weeding them out by not following and clicking "show less of this".

FB numbers continue to grow, so don't expect the end is nigh. Mark Z still has the majority shareholding if I recall and it was never about money for him although everyone says that until they have money, but his wealth is now so high it has no real value.

Snapchat, well I just don't get it. Maybe if you are having an affair, but a message service that deletes the messages, not for me. I've had this argument even with adults and they say it soo much better than Whatsap. Why, only because it deletes the messages for you?

Instagram, well I don't have, but been meaning too as a few friends say they rarely use FB anymore as Instagram pictures cannot be downloaded or shared. So I need to get around to checking out as if its just a live photo album then I more interested as yes some of the crap on FB is getting a bit much and I might have 20 friends posting stuff but it takes 10min of scrolling through to find it due to ads and other crap.

Facebook is in decline across the teenage years where instagram and twitter and snapchat have taken up the slack. This was on media outlets around 6 months ago. Facebook has it uses like sharing photos whilst on holidays and of course posting narcacistic crap at other times.

Facebook is terrible for group discussions like we see on this service. It just don't work on Facebook.

I have found myself using less and less of Facebook as the noise on the system is just too high. When you need to scroll for pages to find something of interest then system is already loosing relevance.

What's app is also good and I use this as it is across multiple platforms for phones. You can use on pic and Mac and iPhone and android. Facebook is largely a thief of time.

Back on topic when will the new wagons be put to use by PN?

Yes teens are bailing out and to be truthfull that realy is not a bad thing at all lets face it MOST teens and most 20 somethings do have the attention span of a house cat.

Yes we  were mostly once like that at their age also so its not an insult but a pure factual observation of life.

It must be truly terrifying for the shareholders of FB to read reports of them having a bad business model here on RP. 2 billion + monthly users, 66% 1.32 billion + users being daily users, four quarter 2017 earnings up 45% to USD3.4 billion, annual revenue over USD12 billion and USD701 million in profit last year...

Yeah I bet they’re smeg themselves about their flawed business model.

Yes,
I wish I had such a bad business model. No.1 or No.2 website in the world

Growth figures which only point to Mark Zukerberg being the most wealthy and influential person of all time. Move over Bill Gates.

If I remember rightly Snapchat had actually plateaued a while back.

Now, being a resident 20 something I mainly use facebook for groups to just chuck train photos in half the time. By rights if I really wanted to I'd just use instagram if I really wanted too.....

Twitter is actually more dead than it seems in regards to user base. It's a lot smaller than people think it is and a lot harder to engage half the time. Good to follow artists and whatnot though considering the lack of actual restrictions on content to be posted.

A serious downside of Facebook and YouTube is clearly demonstrated in this article - https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/09/technology/russia-election-facebook-ads-rage.html -  from the New York Times of 9 October. In 2016 Russian ‘actors’ were using social media pages and videos originating from US residents as a source of intelligence on domestic protest and discontent. The Russians then set up their own pages, often linked to those postings, to leverage discord among Americans in order to influence the outcome of the 2016 elections. Who needs spooks on the ground when all this can be achieved by remote control?

Surely there is a strong case for government controls on Facebook and friends – the companies were oblivious to what was happening, and even gained advertising revenue from it. Or will they remain enemies of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness in a similar way to the seemingly untouchable National Rifle Association?

Putting FB to one side, social media generally will eventually kill off free to air television if their revenue streams keep falling at 4% a year. The takeover of Channel 10 by CBS will see a FTA/Social Media hybrid type of station emerge. I am happy the Murdochs lost out as they just wanted it to prop up their dying Foxtel model.

What will TV look like in the future as I expect broadcast TV is a lot cheaper to deliver to the mass audience that say cable TV?
