Facebook, as has been stated by almost every social media expert, is the biggest social networking website at the moment. With more than 500 million active users, Facebook certainly did a few if not many things that clicked amongst the users.
If one thinks of Facebook’s history, the simplicity that it had to begin with was it’s charm. It was all simple and yet there was so much to do and so much that kept you hooked to it all the time. Of late, there have been a hoard of changes brought about by the Facebook team some of which we love to love while many that we love to hate. Facebook did see a dip in the number of users with the privacy scares, Facebook Timeline implementation that a number of people still continue to hate but then that isn’t a cause of worry for Facebook at all. Anything that is popular has as many critics as it has appreciators but when the number of critics increase and go past the number of appreciators, that’s when the red alert should go off and changes need to be brought about.
Luckily for Facebook, the moment hasn’t arrived just yet and the way it is going, it is highly doubtful such a situation will arise in the near future. It will take something fatal at the developer end for that to happen. We say this when we have a ‘World Quit Facebook Day’ as 31st May. On 31st May 2010 Quit Facebook Day had approximately 40,000 dedicated members. Even though with the number of active users that Facebook has, this number is fractional yet it has a day to it’s name is all we will say.
We in the past, more in the recent past have hated Facebook for the various updates that it has implemented. We will certainly count them in the list of Facebook Failures and to state the fact there aren’t many huge mistakes or failures for if there were, Facebook wouldn’t have been as huge as it is today.
If we do think of Facebook failures, Privacy issues will be right up there, we do count Facebook’s IPO as a failure as well. Other than that, there have been a number of Facebook failures that might have gone unnoticed for they were taken off from the site soon after they went live on the website. Here is an infographic that gives you the list of Facebook failures at various levels. Check it out:
