This is brilliant! People are finally starting to believe that Facebook is dying, but they still want the thing that Facebook originally promised: to keep in touch with friends and family.

I think we all know that Facebook can’t provide that anymore. Now there’s a chance that something else can. And maybe do it better too.

As always, the Hacker News comments thread is a gold mine full of opinions of how Facebook failed at its professed mission, and ideas for how to do better.

I’m delighted many of the ideas here echo my own thoughts on the topic. That gives me encouragement that I might be on the right track here!
