The lifecycle of a social media platform

 

SMDAY

In honor of today being #SocialMediaDay…

The lifecycle of a social media platform goes like this:
  1. New platform launches, it’s all free and easy to use.
  2. All the kids go to this platform.
  3. User accounts skyrocket.
  4. Then all those kids’ parents get on this platform so they can keep track of their kids.
  5. Then the platform starts selling ads since they now have users with money.
  6. Then all the kids leave the platform for the next new one and the cycle continues.
Lesson for new platforms: don’t sell ads and everyone will like you.
Lesson for parents: eat dinner with your kids every night around the kitchen table and talk to each other.
