Intriguing. I buy your premise here, and not so coincidently find myself spending more time in a GroupMe of close college friends than on Facebook lately. But is the process overhead and (inevitable) noise required to scale that model as you say really worth it? Would have to see.
Been feeling this for a while now, well said. I’d also mention Drift et al as part of this trend… as a generation of messaging-first communicators replaces a generation of email-first communicators, it may be that conversation becomes the new content.
