I like Twitter but I know it’s in trouble. I don’t know what the situation is with Facebook, but I do remember when fern bars were super popular. You just had to go! You just had to be there and that was all there was to it. Have some fried zucchini, right? See and be seen. Mingle!
Then one day, a line no one could see was crossed. It was at that point the popularity of fern bars had peaked.
I watched them close over the course of a few years. It was fast, considering how established some of them were. Where else were you going to meet your date from AOL singles or whatever that was.
I don’t know what did these bars in. Tough DUI laws? Too expensive to go out and drink? Match.com providing and alternate way for people to meet potential partners? Or did people just look up one day and decide they whole scene had become passe?
What do you think is the future of social media? What’s the astrology?
