If you logged into Facebook, you might have noticed some changes going on. That’s if you happened to log in. It’s no surprise that Facebook’s popularity has been spiraling down. Truth of the matter is people don’t log into Facebook as much as they use to. Many just log in to find out the family gossip, snoop on your high school class, or unless you absolutely have to. When did Facebook become so uncool? Maybe when your parents started creating accounts leaving their children to look for another outlet where we wouldn’t be bombarded by comments from our cousin twice removed whom we didn’t know existed!
To stay relevant in today’s never ending sea of social media choices, Facebook has been going above and beyond to stay relevant. They recently released a new feature, Marketplace, which allows you to sale and buy products through Facebook.
This week, they released another feature that is designed for those of us who don’t have weekend plans or can’t make up our minds about where we want to go eat. You can ask your Facebook friends for recommendations of local restaurants, Facebook will use your location to show you places your mutual friends have visited.
You will now also be able to set up appointments at local business that are on Facebook, which saves us the time spent going on to their website and setting up an appointment there.
Lastly, you will be able to buy tickets for events through Facebook.
What do you think about all these added features? Facebook wants to weed out its competitors and provide its users with a platform where they can find anything and everything.
Will these features keep Facebook uses in or drive them out?
