What is ancient?

Facebook vs Twitter

In keeping with my previous post, and after reading Kress (2005), this has to be highlighted!

Facebook is seen as ancient, and Twitter is now more appealing to the younger generation.  Soon perhaps social media will be dominated by lesser words, and perhaps more images?

    Is it truly ancient, or just passé and the user was being facetious?

    Alternatively, what makes it a technology driven issue, but more one of a throw-away society where fashion drives use? i would argue it is a brand issue much akin to fashion than actual technology. Facebook’s technology is fundamentally no different than Twitter in practice at the core.

    You are absolutely spot on. This statement was made by a young mid twenty user. It just shows the power of branding.
