What is Facebook without news?
It's Instagram, right?
And quite frankly Instagram is a far better social media platform.
Interestingly of course Instagram is a Facebook-owned platform but it has not been subject to the company's petulant dummy spit in this country because it is not part of the government's media code.
Perhaps Facebook is already seeing the writing on the wall for its marquee platform.
For the next generation coming through, Facebook is already dead.
"Facebook is for old people dad," my eldest daughter says as she takes a cursory glance up from Instagram on her phone.
Her life revolves around Instagram. It's how her friends connect and communicate.
Remember MySpace? Part of the attraction to Facebook when it launched was its ability to connect people. That was the secret to its success right?
Yet now its mysterious Facebook algorithm controls what it serves to people and the individualism it gave the user early on is no longer there. Facebook has, in a sense, become a victim of its own growth.
Now a global behemoth, it needs to feed the monster and if that means leaving some casualties behind on the way then that is the cost.
Australia was one of those casualties when Facebook decided to hit the delete button on Thursday.
Like a giant digital Death Star, it simply torched everything in its path in its vain attempt to penalise the Australian Government for dare suggesting it show some financial responsibility to our country.
Homepages of charities, emergency services, politicians, councils and other organisations were all vapourised.
Not just the news services they were looking to extinguish.
In their actions on Thursday they wiped the entire trust of their company in Australia in minutes.
But we doubt Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg put his beer down long enough to notice.
Oh well, doesn't matter really.
If the kids are to believed Facebook's headed the way of MySpace anyway.
Put that in your status and smoke it Zuckerberg.
