What Young People Think About Facebook And Instagram – Business Insider.

I would love to read the entire report. I cannot stand Facebook but find it nevertheless useful–And I find myself oddly agoraphobic in Google+–too much of not enough. So I spend (or waste) time on FB not being there. But my primary gripe with FB is its (crass?) marketing of interrelations as commercial occasions. It effectively seeks to colonize–replace? characterize?–“friendships” (laugh) with, as marketplace exchanges. (Putting my old hat on, and let’s change the name of FB to “Houe of Mirth”: no relation is not always already situated within the market, valued as it can be made valuable.) Do I see FB surviving as such? I see MSFT buying it in a year or so, or perhaps even Apple.
