The downfall of Facebook

concealment writes "I’ve heard anecdotally about a huge brand that was complaining recently because it has spent four years building a following of millions of people, promoting its Facebook presence (and, by implication, Facebook itself) on expensive television ads — and now Facebook has flipped a switch and, overnight, their reach dropped by 40%.

You might argue that Facebook has an integrity problem. What it has done here is a classic bait-and-switch maneuver, one where you change the rules after you get everybody into the tent. It’s the kind of thing you expect from a used-car dealer, not a big publicly traded company.

(Note to Editors: a prior article on this topic, by the same author, was posted yesterday. However, this is an interesting followup that suggests the downfall of Facebook is at hand.)"

All good things must end. Every social network comes and goes, and there will always be another one.
