> Sure, there's other social networks out there, but many of them are geared towards younger audiences and, if we're being honest, are more about feeding into extremely low attention spans and entertainment drive, like Tiktok and Snapchat. Some do not work well on anything but a mobile device, if at all, while others, like MeWe, simply don't have the infrastructure in place to create big networks of people.

Right, and those social networks are populated by young people. Facebook isn’t. Young people don’t like FB and find it to be something for dog show enthusiasts. The user base is dying. This is well known and widely reported.

> You're just angry about it and will literally say anything in support of the site shutting down.

You seem weird af.

You're funny if you think a platform designed for a younger audience means that another platform is automatically dying. Young people DO still use Facebook, whether you want to admit it or not. They're using both. Fact is, those other platforms hold a fraction of users.

You're talking about billions of users. Facebook losing 14 million preteens to Tiktok is not signaling the death of the website. FB has nearly 3 billion active users, with 1.7 billion daily active users -- other networks are less than a few hundred million. Would you like me to draw you a picture of the difference that makes?
