5th horseman pick :: From the Prof.

Last year’s pick was Netflix. Makes sense – the operating system video.

Now he is picking Spotify – essentially the operating system for audio. Makes sense, and this is why they shouldn’t mess around with video at all.

The #1 reason Facebook won’t ever change – Om Malik

The #1 reason Facebook won’t ever change – Om Malik:

Facebook is about making money by keeping us addicted to Facebook. It always has been — and that’s why all of our angst and headlines are not going to change a damn thing.

Yup. Delete the app and use the web version as needed. 

People ping me on FB messenger but I don’t have notifications on – so I see them when I see them.

WhatsApp is so entrenched in people – I have to use it but I don’t want to. 

Instagram – got rid of the app ions ago.

Spend less time on FB properties folks – you will feel better, I promise.

There is so much to write about FB these days. 

I don’t have the app installed but keep the account since many people use messenger. I don’t use Instagram anymore – mostly after FB bought it. I keep WhatsApp since agin – so many people use it.

I bought FB stock on the first big deep and of course have held most of it but I sold some a few months back since I seriously wonder with the Russian backlash, the VPN spying crap and now this – if eventually the tide will turn.

I think people may start to use it less but Mark was smart to buy a bunch of other stuff to solidify his revenue and monopoly moat.

This kid’s messenger stuff takes the cake though.

Right out of a movie.
