Social media is very much alive. The metaverse, on the other hand, is a dumpster fire that proves Zuckerberg is officially too old to lead. The metaverse is his Harley Davidson t-shirt.

It's almost like ascribing cause to daily moves in a ticker is a fool's errand.

So what is Snap?  Oh, it's Snapchat, it's just that their actual name is Snap Social Media.  The name "Snapchat" is way too long for the young people, so let's just call it Snap.  There's this theory behind the name, we paid a lot of money for someone to explain it to us.  Anyway you want to buy shoes since you just bought shoes?  We heard you like shoes, there is a sale nearby.  Shoes?  SHOES!

Social media controled by big players is dying.

It will move to public open source peer to peer blockchains and facebook concerned

Even its founder will tell u the community of users and programmers own Linux.

Otherwise Microsoft would have bought it and shut it down years ago

I have to admit I haven't paid much attention to blockchains. Will this new social media run like bittorrent where you have your own node running on something and link to other nodes?  Or is it more like "open source" Red Hat where someone like IBM is still behind the scenes keeping the servers running?

And of course, how do you keep the Nazis and pedos from corrupting the whole thing?

And it took you 20 years to figure out Linux was a worthy alternative?

Most of us figured that out after Windows 95.

Maybe you're just slow on the uptake. Hence your crypto evangelism.
