According to our local rag the Vancouver Sun, Facebook – the popular social network, has seen a decline in it’s growth rate recently. Hardly surprising given the phenomenal traffic statistics the site was enjoying last year. Before all you professionals abandon ship consider this: Nexopia – aimed at the teeny crowd – is the fastest growing site on the Internet in terms of ranking. Could it be that the younger set are heading elsewhere as their elders infiltrate the Facebook world.
Sounds like great news to me – let the teenies go off and enjoy inane drivel like “write your crush on a note” or “find out who you will marry” (their terms not mine!) and leave Facebook to the grown ups and professionals looking to use social networks effectively and productively.
