What do you think can/will kill social media platforms?

I have always said it would be great if something came along that just tanked Twitter and Facebook. I am okay with Youtube, you can avoid comments. But I really think that if something could kill off Facebook and Twitter, the world in general would be a happier place. People would go back to niche selective platforms like this forum for example. Instead of being focused on social media, people would get back into social networking. 

You think there is anything that will or can kill of social media?

I don't quite get your point there. What is the problem with social media?

The way it makes people act and think anymore, I don't like it. I see it on the news and directly with my friends and family. So to me, it would be best if something came along and killed both Facebook and Twitter off though it is hard to imagine something being able to do that at this point. I boycotted both for the most part a few weeks back. Two of my friends were fighting on both, dragged other people into it. All in the name of being "politically correct". *pukes*

I don't think anything can kill it. It seems to be at the center of most people's lives. Everyone wants to show off all the things they can't afford to people they likely hate. I have no issues with it when you use it to actually have true connections with people. That is was it was meant for. People seem to only like to show off, complain, and spread horrible hate/gossip these days.

I tend to just avoid things I find toxic.  The thing with Twitter and Facebook is that no one is forcing you to use it, and I actually get odd looks of contempt from people when I tell them I don't have a Facebook.

As far as Twitter and Facebook, I don't think there's a chance that Facebook will really have any competition within the foreseeable future, but Twitter certainly has competition.  If new social networks can piggy-back off crowd-funding and decentralized networks, there's a huge window of opportunity.  From what I've heard, Gab is planning an Initial Coin Offering, which means it will be able to fund itself without the need of venture capitalist pouring millions into similar startups.

The next few years should interesting.  It's always wise to remember that any dominant industry player can blindsided by some new variant of technology.

I for one would love an alternative video platform to rise up. Youtube is getting too touchy feely and it is ruining comedy for a lot of people. I think a lot of the Youtubers I watch now will leave soon if they don't change things. Hard to make a living when you have to live by the standard's of Google's bible and the 1,001 commandments.
