Facebook certainly isn't the trendiest social media out there, what with the rise of apps like Instagram, SnapChat, and even new kid on the block Periscope - but is the OG social media site going out of style? Not so fast. Facebook might not be the "It Girl" of social media, but this iconic site is standing strong: according to Fast Company, Facebook is the #1 downloaded app on iOS - and the #2 spot goes to Facebook messenger. #Winning.
The world may love starting a social media presence on the app du jour (seriously, does anyone other than a celeb need a Periscope?!) but that doesn't mean that people are forgetting about the original - even if they don't use it the way they used to. While my mom's main form of communication these days seems to be through her Facebook wall, I'm more likely to connect with my friends via SnapChat convos. That's not to say that I've given up on Facebook entirely: Facebook is now my dumping ground for photos I want remembered and the only social media I trust to help organize any kind of event.
As this ranking shows, our society isn't done with Facebook just yet. Instagram may beautify your photos and SnapChat may let you play around with emojis for days, but if you want to stalk your middle school crush, Facebook is the place to do it. We can't kick it to the curb just yet.
