How did Social media evolve up to 2019?

It’s almost crazy to think of a world without Social media yet it feels like yesterday that I heard about “theFacebook”.

This video done by:”Data is beautiful” shows the growth and demise of all the popular channels. 

A few takeaways for me:

1. Facebook is going NOWHERE. They will be No1 for a very long time to come. With them buying Instagram and WhatsApp They will continue to be the social network of choice. What would be interesting is to see where their focus will be in 2020

2. Even the biggest platforms can flop if they don’t evolve….ask Myspace

3. Watch-out for TIKTOK. Although a platform for School kids, this platform will be huge in 5 years time.
