The Public Is Growing Weary of Popular Technology

Facebook and Apple have been at the top of their respective games for some time now, but what goes up must come down. When we polled the public on the two companies, we found that most people were less than thrilled about the brands’ future. Call it tech fatigue, or a simple need for change.

Like gravity, the mysterious force of public opinion is making it difficult for popular companies to retain their audience. Facebook has been fighting it for a while, but even Apple could fall if it’s not careful to keep up with public interest.

Facebook was founded by Mark Zuckerberg with his college roommates and fellow students Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. The website’s membership was initially limited by the founders to Harvard students, but was expanded to other colleges in the Boston area, the Ivy League, and Stanford University.

It gradually added support for students at various other universities before opening to high school students, and eventually to anyone aged 13 and over. However, according to a May 2011 Consumer Reports survey, there are 7.5 million children under 13 with accounts and 5 million under 10, violating the site’s terms of service

Twitter is an online social networking service and microblogging service that enables its users to send and read text-based messages of up to 140 characters, known as “tweets”.
It was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey and launched that July.

The service rapidly gained worldwide popularity, with over 500 million active users as of 2012, generating over 340 million tweets daily and handling over 1.6 billion search queries per day. Since its launch, the Twitter website has become one of the top 10 most visited on the Internet, and has been described as “the SMS of the Internet.”

Unregistered users can read tweets, while registered users can post tweets through the website interface, SMS, or a range of apps for mobile devices

    I wonder what would eclipse Facebook's shine?

    I think people are more suspicious than weary. Hype has a lot to do with that.

    Well, do *you* think Facebook's star is on the wane?

    • Berrie Pelser 25 juli 2012 om 14:59

      I do not think so Laura 😉

      fwiw, these days I don't seem to use Twitter much at all anymore, but am still plugging along on FB. (your mileage may vary)

      I've never used Twitter. Not feeling superior, just don't have twitter capability or thumbs small enough to make it work. 😉

    I don't know if you have read "The Genius of the Beast" by Howard Bloom – where he talks about the absolutely natural cycle of Boom and Bust that has been happening since time immemorial and points out lessons for Capitalism. The point is the entities which learn from and make the most of the Bust are the ones which truly grow and survive ( like we have done so far as a species) – so I guess that is the challenge each of these behemoths face – to truly reinvent ( not just adapt) to thrive or end up like the dinosaurs!

    I have noticed some "Facebook exhaustion" from many friends, and several are spending more time on Google+.

    Great article thanks for sharing.

    Out with the old and in with the new. 🙂

    Agree with above…keeping up with all these networks is exhausting!

    The dynamic of the third mover advantage:
    In any industry there were a bunch of little ones and then somebody does it right:
    Nothing Replaced Cisco
    Nothing Replaced Oracle
    Nothing Replaced Microsoft
    Nothing Replaced Apple
    Nothing Replaced IBM

    Nothing will replace Facebook (that opportunity is gone)
    There are always new category of things but that is not replacement of a leader – maybe a replacement of a category i.e. the old cell phone devices (Nokia)
    Or the old cassette player (Sony Walkman)…

    Well – just a though at least
