U.S. President Obama Thinks Facebook Isn’t Cool Anymore

At the beginning of 2014, social media giant Facebook revealed that it now has over 1.15 billion monthly active users, 819 million monthly active users on mobile and 699 million daily active users. Undoubtedly, this clearly depicts the popularity of Facebook and most of the people under aged has attributed Facebook as “cool”. But if you ask anyone over the age of 30 if Facebook is “cool” or not, chances are the answer you will hear is “No.” Even U.S. President Barack Obama thinks Facebook isn’t cool anymore.

President Obama recently sat down with a handful of young adults to talk about how his administration can get more 18-to-34-year-olds to sign for coverage under the US Affordable Care Act. Robinson Meyer, who covers tech related news and an associate editor in The Atlantic sat behind Obama at a coffee shop. He was hearing attentively what Obama was saying.

Meyer heard Obama saying “It seems like they don’t use Facebook anymore. It’s not that exciting.” Meyer is not sure but he thinks he also heard Obama talking about “Snapchat” and “Instagram.”

Here the word “they” is a bit mystery as to what aged people Obama indicated. When Meyer tried to get to the bottom of that spoken word “they,” he couldn’t get any particular answer at then, but later he understood that with the word “they,” Obama pointed at ‘teenagers and young adults.’
