Tbf Facebook should go all in on their market place. Greatly improve listing, searching and filtering options and perhaps even do a payment system.Facebook has been a digital retirement home/flea market for many years now, so I'm not surprised.
I left a while ago and haven't missed it.
Sadly Truth Social still only has one user, when asked for a comment he pleaded the 5th.
Actually my wife has managed to rid of some junk we had lying around through Fakebook marketplace. Not sell, but basically give it away. I don't use it, but my wife isn't non-binary, she is all female, so she uses Fakebook. lol.Tbf Facebook should go all in on their market place.

I'm still TECHNICALLY on Facebook but there are usually months between my logins. I just couldn't be bothered anymore and Suckerberg's attitude doesn't give me any desire to support his obscene wealth.Facebook has been a digital retirement home/flea market for many years now, so I'm not surprised.

Which basically means that they have no standards at all. Because of this, Facebook became nothing more than a disinformation platform for the crazy conspiracy theorists. The amount of BS surrounding COVID vaccinations on Facebook was nothing short of astonishing. It's no wonder that so many people were scared with the lies that they read on Facebook (and Twitter for that matter).What does facebook expect when 50% users are fake and there is no content filtering policy? I tried to report scams, fake users, bullying in comments and facebook always replied that "everything is according to it's policy standards".
Ain't that the truth!FB and TikTok are proof that you can make a crap app and still make a great success. It's obviously much better to invest in propaganda than to waste money on salaries for programmers and designers.
The biggest problem with TikTok is the content creators that are tolerated on there, not the platform itself. There's literally no rhyme or reason for the existence of the garbage that I've seen on there. For that reason, I never bothered opening a TikTok account.Now, when I played a TikTok video for the first time I thought "Screw the designers, didn't they hire any programmers"? If preschool children made that media player, it would probably be more functional.
I don't think that propaganda had anything to do with it. TikTok spread all over the world because it's relatively easy for content creators to use and I think the only rule is that no NSFW content is allowed. That makes TikTok more accessible than a platform like YouTube which has rules that content creators must follow, rules that, unfortunately, seem to change by the day and nobody gets told about them.It has slowly improved in the last few months, but considering the number of users it already has, it's clear they didn't come there for the ease of use, or quality of design. But because it was the only one in China, so it had a lot of users there. Then it spread all over the world thanks to propaganda.
It's true, but people clearly don't care about how advanced a platform is. They just care about how easy it is to use and what content it holds. Twitter is about as basic as it gets but, because it's easy to use, it's popular.FB is crap, and yet it looks like technology from the future compared to TikTok.
These are the same people who thought that AOL was the internet.Now if we can just get old people to stop thinking FB is the internet and therefore only having their business "website" on FB...
I believe that YouTube is the next one to fall. Content creators are really getting sick of rules that change daily and without notice.Title should be worded better, as it could imply that they're using YT instead of FB as a social media site. Which would be a laughable correlation to suggest.
Yeah, they're copying Disney with that "Richard" move.Criticizing the customer? Oh yeah, that's a smart business move ...... NOT!
Social media in general seems to bring out the worst in people. Facebook just happens to be the biggest.Yeah, Facebook is all old people arguing. By old people I mean people my age. It is sad. I use it for Marketplace and my neighborhood HOA group. Seems to bring the worst in people.
That's why I'm never on it.Tiktok is fcking trash and your IQ drops 10 points for every minute you're on it.
The problem with YouTube is the treatment of content creators. Soon, the problem will be no new videos to watch because as soon as a new platform opens up, creators will leave YouTube in droves.As a small YouTube channel owner and one who loves YouTube TV, it pleases me that I threw myself in with the (current) winner!
YouTube just mostly gets things "right" for me.
That's assuming another platform isn't going to do it worse than YT. Just because YT sucks, that doesn't prevent everyone else from sucking even more.The problem with YouTube is the treatment of content creators.

What I was hearing was that there's a problem with videos being de-monetized without an explanation or recourse. That's just terrible considering how much work some of these content creators put into the production values of their videos.That's assuming another platform isn't going to do it worse than YT.

Was watching a nooblets livestream last week and he laid out the business practice and strategy plus creator promotion problems with Twitch and why it will likely fail in a few years' time because it's unsustainable. According to his experience (as a relatively small YTer) you can maintain viewer engagement on YT much easier than Twitch due to Twitch's horrid algorithms.
