Facebook’s Popularity Makes It Worse for Serious Conversations, Says Saving America CCO

Talking politics

Facebook has over one billion monthly active users, and is striving for world domination. However, according to Saving America CCO Eric Yaverbaum, “the more ubiquitous it is, the more incompatible Facebook becomes for serious group conversations. Research and anecdotal observation agree that the juxtaposition of semi-trivial posts (like cat pictures) prevent a thorough debate on more pressing, complex topics.”

Saving America, which hopes to become the go-to social network for in-depth political discussions, launched last month with the hope of stamping out angry rants with monetary incentives. Yaverbaum spoke to our sister site PRNewser about whether up-and-coming platforms could replace the social media heavyweights:

Twitter has always been a wonderful place to talk about big ideas – though with very few words. Although Twitter has become a true vehicle of liberty, spreading ideas over oceans and across borders, it’s impossible to articulate a complicated viewpoint in 140 characters. Clearly, there’s space for competition.
 
Nevertheless, I don’t see Facebook and Twitter dying off anytime soon – they’ve both learned their lessons from Myspace, and they’re both very good at what they do. But there’s plenty of room for alternate social networks to emerge, especially those which better reward their userbases.
