Facebook Failures and Mistakes – Infographic

Facebook is a success no matter how you look at it. It has over 800 million users in a world of two billion internet subscribers, which means that it has almost become the default personal and social web operating system for the planet.Facebook Failures and Mistakes – Infographic

Most of the the younger generation check their Facebook account before they have poured the milk on their cereal every morning.

In fact most open up their laptop, iPad or smart phone and a do a little “Facebooking” before they visit the bathroom!

It is where people

  • Post their photos
  • Upload their videos
  • Chat, message and email their friends and family
  • Browse special offers and coupons from brands
  • Friend people
  • Buy stuff
  • Sell stuff
  • Listen to music
  • Promote their business and brands

In fact Facebook “is” their online ecosystem.

Along with any success there are also failures and mistakes. Since its start up in 2004 Facebook has managed to create privacy concerns, annoy its natives with frequent user interface (UX) changes and  in 2010 it went down for several hours.

Here is an infographic that takes a closer look at the stumbles that Facebook has had over the years.

  • interesting stuff.

    facebook is like the microsoft of the social media world. 

    everyone uses it, a lot of people complain about it, many even talk about ditching it, but they still use it anyway.


    • SO true, I was thinking the exact same thing! You love to hate it and hate that you love it!

    Crazy seeing all of the in-depth failures of such a successful website so publicly displayed on here. This is the kind of thing they don’t want us to know about so that we all keep visiting the website with rose-colored glasses. I personally love Facebook, I thought everybody did. Seems like no matter what kind of negative articles that come out about this popular social media staple, users will continue to use the site because it’s what is “in” for the time being.

  • At least Facebook tried to innovate with their failures. The best things in life come after failure in my opinion.

    I would love to see a Google fail infographic next chalked full of Buzz, Wave, goog411, and the rest! 😀

  • Very entertaining! Bravo!
