Are You Missing Out On Social Media?

Traditional social media? They are only 25 years old, but yes, there are social media platforms one might refer to as traditional, as in older.  The first social media platform was 1997's Six Degrees. Simple by today’s standards, users could upload photos, add friends, and not much else.

While it would normally be a very big  deal to shutter a major social media channel, this was a weird exception. As an NPR reporter said on the radio this week, "The surprising thing wasn't that Google+ suffered a massive data breach, or that Google is shutting it down, it's that it was still around at all."

People are deleting Facebook at an alarming rate. Here’s why we’re not panicking.


What would we do without Facebook in our lives?
