Hype

October 7th, 2008 by lucas

It’s really funny to see how popular things can get, and then totally disappear. Some time ago, there was a TV show on the french TV called “Un an de +”, that talked about what was in the news one year before. It was really interesting to see how quickly everybody can forget stuff that looks so important now.

For example, who remembers Second Life? Apparently, it has been on the decline for some time already, according to Google Trends:

Will Facebook be the next Second Life?

    I think facebook would seem quite different to second life. Certainly if you look at the google trends, the second life searches are very much related to news coverage. Facebook or Myspace don’t seem so highly connected.

    That’s not to say facebook isn’t going to start the downward trend after a while.
