Top Ten Things that Will Be Dead or Irrelevant by 2030

Things change. In 10 years, many things of today will die or become irrelevant to the point where nobody uses it. Some of these things are already near-dead, others are still popular today, but not for long.

The Top Ten

1 YouTube YouTube is a global video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California, United States. The service was created by three former PayPal employees in February 2005. In November 2006, it was bought by Google for US$1.65 billion.

As much as I hate to admit it, youtube will be killed in a decade from now, mostly thanks to the site itself. Censorship has started to become rampant and probably only will in the future thanks to their new update which is supposed to come in 2020 which would remove videos that aren't "commercially viable" and it's such a broad term, it might as well remove 90% of videos that ever existed in Youtube. So in other words, rest in peace Youtube.
2005 - 2020
Edit: This comment is an overreaction now

Don't think it will go away. Especially considering how many people are still using it despite all the dumb changes. I mean, people flood to it like they flood Disney, and we all know Disney is controversial just like Youtube.

The coppa update next month is the worst update ever! I am not looking forward too it will probably ruin youtube with kid related videos hopefully not family channels either, it dumb they getting rid of all the good stuff, like the thumbs up and down, share button, cards end screens and live chat on kid related video, and even the subscribe button and notification bell if a channel is marked made for kids witch is so stupid, hopefully one channel that is almost at 100k subscribers will make it before jan 1 incase his channel is maked make for kids, the old youtube from when I discovered it in summer 2007 or 2008 until Dec 31, 2019 is way better, after that it it will suck, I wish Jan 1, 2020 wasn't coming so quickly

I cannot believe they're adding the COPPA update. Like really, what's wrong with kids using the site?

Nothing. YouTube on their crack-smocking thinking thinks that they do the parents' job when in reality it's the parents that do the parents' job.

2 Cash

In Sweden, Cash is already dead. Thousands of people have already gotten microchip implants in their right hand or forehead, to replace paper money. Most people will probably just take the microchip, but Christians will have to be dragged kicking and screaming since they fear that these chips are a precursor to the "mark of the beast" or "666".

With credit cards and debit cards there really is no need to carry money with you so eventually money just will no longer be produced in favor of a digital system

It will all be bitcoin.

3 Facebook Facebook is a corporation and an online social networking service headquartered in Menlo Park, California, in the United States.

The owner is very hated and Facebook has done so many bad things like selling your information to business for profit, automating your feed to only see things that agree with your point of view, purposefully spreading misinformation and openly saying they don't care and will not change

Facebook itself has kinda been on a decline since maybe 2013? Kids today prefer Instagram (which is owned by Facebook).

I usually used MySpace more.

4 Grocery Stores

People will get even more lazy than they already are and buy their groceries online. AI robots will produce the goods and deliver them so humans don't have to work anymore. This will destroy Capitalism, which is a good thing since Capitalism has already killed off many things (video games, health, etc.) but if Capitalism goes down, it shouldn't try to take us with it.

How is grocery story disappear equal capitalism dying? Capitalism hasn't killed off video games or health, it has actually showed that people are willing to be ripped off in their video games as long as they can complain about it while still giving these companies all their money that looks like the opposite of destroying to me

The year 2030 is only 10 years away. Supermarkets will be prominent for many years after that. The current increase in online grocery shopping is personally no where near significant for this to happen so soon.

Agreed. Also, wouldn't all online shopping just be the next step in Capitalism? I mean, Corporations would still produce, advertise and profit from the selling of products. Commerce. Capitalism.

Already in the process of getting rid of them.

5 Satellite TV

On A Side Note, Having an Antenna, Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+ is like Giving Cable the Middle Finger.

With the way technology is moving, it would make sense to me that satellite T.V. will become absolute. I will admit that I, however, did not do much research on this topic, so take this comment light-heartedly.

I Could Also See It Ending too. Manly Because of Netflix and other Streaming Services as Well as On the Air T.V. As Well. Considering the Fact that With Streaming and Having an Antenna for On Air is Not Just Cheaper, But More Convenient As Well. I Would Rather Pay 30 Dollars For an Antenna and 10 Dollars Monthly For Streaming Then Paying 100+ for Cable That I'll Only Watch only 7 Channels.

What's going to kill DirecTV? Take a guess? It starts with an 'N'.

6 Physical Media

With the onset of the internet and 5G rolling out, downloading and viewing media is easier than ever. Purchasing newspaper, DVDs, etc., have become nearly impractical for these 3 reasons: 1) They take up space. 2) They (usually) cost more. You need to pay for newspaper, while most news sites online are free. 3) It is much more efficient.
I can, however, see some good points as to why physical media is still relevant. For people who cannot afford devices or TVs, it’s nice. There is also something special about being able to hold a DVD or newspaper. But, even with these good qualities, online media will only become more practical in the future, thus winning out. We are already seeing physical media disappear now.

I really think at the end of the day physical media is better. Change my mind.

They will just stop making CDs, Blu-rays, and DVDs since everyone uses Netflix and Spotify nowadays.

7 The Internet

Or at least the Internet as we know it. The clearnet will be doomed and our only hope of survival is the deep web. Censorship and mass surveillance will only get worse.

It will be happen when The internet dies

Most likely not

Almost in John Titor's Age I know

8 TheTopTens TheTopTens is a website created in 2005, which is used to write top ten lists, where anyone can vote, comment, and write posts about the lists.

I'll be suspended if I make at comment as to why this may/may not be true

It Will Still Exist, Everyone Would Have Retired Though

Was never really relevant at all, honestly.

9 Free Speech

Political correctness will continue and eventually the first amendment will be gone. Censorship will thrive. I heard New York is now charging people $250,000 just for saying the words "Illegal alien".

I can't tell if your making jokes or exactly believe this.
And New York is not charging people for using the word "illegal alien" they are charging you if you use it directly at another person in an intend to make them feel unsafe or unwelcome, it is an initiative to limit malicious towards other people

Nah, it has survived for centuries now, many 3rd world countries didn't even try it.

10 CDs

The Newcomers

? Cars

By 2030, we will have flying cars and firstly, more self-driving cars.

The Contenders

11 American Football

Football will die soon, and there are several ways it could. College campuses could die and everything becomes online. Players could keep getting injured and scare everyone else into not playing the sport. Cable T.V. could die or people would lose interest in watching a 4 hour sports game. We'll just say that College Football and the NFL will either die completely or become irrelevant.

If American football dies then I would say all the sports that we know today will die as well to be replaced with new types of sports or maybe sports in general will die, Though I honestly see American football expanding to be more global.
People have been trying to kill football for 50 years now I don't see it magically happening in ten years, the only thing that has happened was making more rules to limit the harm that can happen, perhaps eventually a new rule will make it so it is completely boring to watch and people lose interest

Irrelevant

12 Tom Brady Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, Jr., is an American football quarterback for the New England Patriots of the National Football League. Brady is known for being the only quarterback in history to win 6 Super Bowls, and is often considered one of the best quarterbacks of all time. Brady is also frequently ...read more.

He'll definitely retire in the next couple years

13 TikTok

14 deviantART DeviantArt is an online artwork, videography and photography community. The website was launched on August 7, 2000, by Angelo Sotira, Scott Jarkoff, Matthew Stephens and others.

I seriously hope Devianart is dead by next decade

15 Fortnite: Battle Royale

No words to describe Fortnite and all the other terrible Battle Royale games

Fortnite sucks

It needs to. It's a Satanic game.

16 Reddit

What was once a place for free speech has became a safe haven for leftists with a terrible design (although you can still use the old one).

It is actually still a place for free speech and isn't just a safe haven for leftist, it is also a safe haven for rightist as well as long as your not violates others free speech.

22 Furries
23 The Cloud

I Could See The Cloud Going to Die Because of One Thing. Hackers. With The Cloud, Your Data is More Prone to Them. Which Probably Explains SD Cards Are Replacing USBs and The Cloud.
And With Video Games, it's Worse Because Once They're Gone, That's It. They're Gone For Good. Which Probably Explains Why No One Likes Stadia. and too Add Insult to Injury, More and More Hackers are Breaking in to The Cloud Stealing Precious Data. But Even Then, If Hackers Don't Kill your Files, Then The Server Will. The Cloud is Just too Unsafe for Files. Which Explains Why I Would Rather Use SD Cards Than The Cloud. Because At Least With Them, They're Less Prone to Hackers.
