The Next Facebook Is Facebook (Sort of) 6/30/2016 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

People are wondering what’s the next Facebook, and BusinessInsider.com reports that the next Facebook is well, Facebook. Facebook Messenger, among other messaging apps are becoming the next social networks and are gaining massive amounts of followers and are growing in use. WeChat, and other popular messaging apps offer users the ability to send texts, videos, photos, and more to their friends and brands they follow. Facebook Messenger has hundreds of millions of users now and continues to grow. Personally, I believe messaging apps are more social than social networks because when you send someone a message, odds are they’ll respond.  You just post something to Facebook and no one may even pay attention to it. It’s much more intimate and private too, which I am a fan of as well. I hope messaging apps continue to grow in use over other social sites because we all could use less selfies on our timelines. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
