Facebook is no longer a social network. It’s the world's most powerful news reader | Pando Daily

Facebook is no longer a social network. It’s the world's most powerful news reader | Pando Daily | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

It was barely two years ago that things were starting to look absolutely awful for Facebook.


Its stock was hitting one new low after another, at one point falling to half of its IPO value. General Motors announced that Facebook ads were basically useless. The same people who named Mark Zuckerberg the Person of the Year began the calls for him to resign. And the whole “teens hate Facebook” line began to emerge, along with accusations that the company overpaid for Instagram.


The perception was that Facebook was sick, and the list of symptoms could have filled a Pepto Bismol commercial. What’s more, the company’s app and gaming platform, which at one point had seemed so promising, was falling apart as Zynga collapsed.


But the disease itself could not have been more clear — Facebook’s mission statement and core value proposition were not working. Maybe people didn’t want to connect with their friends and family anymore. Perhaps all those years of baby pictures and FarmVille sheep had turned them off from The Stream. Or could it have been that youngsters were paranoid about Mom and Dad spying on their social life? Some argued that an “everybody in one place” social network was giving way to specialized niche networks — a clear sign that Facebook was the next AOL or Yahoo.


Everybody was right, insofar as every dissatisfied user probably had a different reason for losing interest.


But as Facebook was losing tens of billions of dollars in valuation, a company thousands of miles away was growing like a weed — BuzzFeed. In fact, during the worst of Zuckerberg’s trials, CEO Jonah Peretti was in the process of raising big dollars at valuations rarely seen in media companies.


We didn’t fully realize it at the time, but BuzzFeed was giving Facebook the ultimate lesson. Through a combination of data savvy, content experimentation, and an almost shameless desire to win, Jonah Peretti was proving that what Facebook users really wanted… was to read shit.


Nobody will give BuzzFeed credit for making us human beings feel better about our species. Even the executives in Palo Alto confess their frustration at how the typical user would prefer a funny cat listicle over a long-form Mother Jones investigation on lead poisoning… by a margin of about 100-to-1. But that isn’t relevant. What BuzzFeed proved was that all people — young, old, black, white, male, female, gay, straight — find great delight in a story that resonates with them. Enough to keep coming back to Facebook.
