Social media platforms are now at an age where they need to evolve. They need to do so for their users, for their publisher and advertisers, and for themselves.
Chronological timelines, for example, can no longer remain the norm. It’s just not possible. We are now billions of social media users, each one everyone of us has more and more friends on the platforms. And the more people we follow, the more content gets shared on our timelines, and we just cannot scroll through all of it anymore.
