As you read this, more than likely Facebook, Twitter and even LinkedIn are as common to you as the Internet itself. However, many have already forgotten the large social media players of the not-so-distant past that have utterly failed. It doesn’t seem that long ago when names like MySpace, Friendster, and even Digg were all the rage. These monster social media sites had their “time in the spotlight” but now they are either long forgotten, slowly dying or simply drifting along with little to no growth.
This infographic developed by MyLife.com tells the story of these once famous social media sites that are now a part (or going to be soon) of the dead pool. What are your thoughts? Do you agree with the infographic creator? Or do some of these still have a chance to rebound? I’d love to hear your feedback in the comments section.
