You still have to remember that Facebook was originally a trombinoscope designed for cruising. The original concept of Twitter has not really been distorted. In 10 years, it has simply adapted to the rise of smartphones, widely acclaimed by young people and invented new advertising formats, corresponding to their browsing habits.

In 10 years, it will also be more democratized, helmets will be more affordable and it will focus on one major sector: education.

Another area of ​​development for Facebook: Artificial Intelligence. The network tries to understand people’s content and behavior in order to show what is most likely to interest users. Already associated with Microsoft, Google, IBM and Amazon, Facebook seeks to define with these large groups the best practices of Artificial Intelligence and thus avoid drifts in the years to come.
