Facebook is apparently suffering from the lack of millennials on their platform and is doing whatever they can to get them back including pushing more virtual love on younger girls and other millennials.
Facebook announced on Thursday that they would be launching a new Facebook dating app “Facebook Dating” …. How clever.
One of the features of this new program will allow “crushes” to know they like each other if they have both included the other on a special “crush-list” This is not anything unlike tinder. This, in a large way, is like tinder for Facebook. And here I thought social media couldn’t get more greasy.
The big key is that Facebook users will be allowed to include Instagram users on their list. They hope this strategy will convince users on Instagram to migrate over to Facebook, or at least start including Facebook more in their social media habit. That’s right. It’s all like a habit. Facebook has turned into the drug of a few years ago. New drugs like Snapchat and others have taken over. A few years from now, it will be another new designer social media drug.
To more we become involved in social media, the less we are connected to REAL people. I am not saying social media doesn’t have its place. It does. However, it can become very easy to get lost inside of it and lose a part of yourself. Social media can be just a destructive as alcohol or any other drug. The effects, in fact, are quite similar to heavy users.
Be safe out there….
