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.

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

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.

It is getting more and more controlling with the content they will allow on their site their monetization system has already screwed over many of the channels that mde youtube a cool site in the first place now it is turning into more of an online T.V. catering to Popular shows more than the independent producers

2 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.

Not the actual MySpace, but a MySpace clone that is also called "MySpace".

Sadly, this is about to be end of Facebook, agree

3 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".

Just because it will be dead doesn't mean it should be. Also I'm a Christian and I won't be dragged kicking and screaming because of the whole "mark of the beast" thing. I'll be dragged kicking and screaming because cash is better.

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

Need Bitcoin for the people who have no cash in the wallets

It will all be bitcoin.

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

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.

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.

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

Let go of the whole satellite TV thing anyway

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.

I still hold on to them due to the rise in censorship

Sadly DVDs and Blu Rays will be died by 2030

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.

Yup. The internet as we know it was good & then it went downhill with all these fights, mean comments & inappropriate images, videos & games. Some people bully one another even for no reason. The internet used to be a safer place as well. Now we also deal with things like spyware, malware, & even virus-including websites. Plus while there’s still fun going on for now, it’s not what it used to be & will never be that good again. Plus sites like Google are known for tracking data & YouTube used to be a good site for entertainment but then went downhill & focuses more on advertisements, shock value & money. Yet MySpace was great & the classic of social media until marketing & other issues brought it downhill. Facebook was supposed to be about connecting with friends even in the past & while it is, it’s more focused on marketing business & (you guessed it) money. Yet Twitter is stricter than before & not adding an edit feature & Snapchat was good but went way downhill in 2018 with ...more

Already is in the position to getting rid of this

It will be happen when The internet dies

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 wouldn't be too surprised if the site got shut down at some point tbh. It seems very dead, and inactive atm. So that genuinely wouldn't shock me in the slightest.

Honestly I wouldn’t mind this site is a rotting corpse of what it once was and the administration has failed to do anything to fix the major issues here or innovate at all

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

Was never really relevant at all, honestly.

9 TikTok TikTok Product Image

That would be great. TikTok is the worst thing that ever happened to social media. I wouldn’t even spend one minute on this garbage app. Besides, there is already Snapchat so why did we need this as well?

TikTok could quite possibly be the most pathetic media to ever be on the internet.

Same goes for Fortnite and Facebook

Please kill it with fire

10 CDs

yeah because everyone thinks nobody uses CD's anymore, but still LOTS of people still use them

The Contenders

11 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

DO YOU GUYS SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING. First Amendment being taken away in the name of "safety" but I'm pretty sure those who are awake can easily tell what could happen.

Remember that the first amendment applies to laws passed by congress only. The internet is not bound by it, and can literally ban anyone they want.

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

It will be. Free speech goes irrelevant

12 Tom Brady Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, Jr., is an American football quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 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

he just retired

13 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

14 Fortnite: Battle Royale Fortnite: Battle Royale Product Image

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

It needs to. It's a Satanic game.

Yep! My Brother plays it 10 hours a day! and I hate it!

Die fortnite

15 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.

No, it's a good site for art. Just because it has infamous arts, that doesn't mean it's bad.

It doesn't need to die out.

Eclipse however, that's a different story.

I seriously hope Devianart is dead by next decade

So are Devianart too

16 Twitter Twitter is an online news and social networking service where users post and interact with messages, "tweets," restricted to 140 characters.

I hope it stays but the CEO needs to go. Jack is turning Twitter into a leftist propaganda site that sensors or otherwise bans anyone who dares say anything bad about the left.

It hopefully will lose its current leadership and staff real soon. The site won't go away but I hope Jack Dorsey does.

And Twitter site as well as Skype

Dead by the next decade of sorts

17 Coronavirus

Yes it should definitely be dead the coronavirus is so dumb!

It will be remembered, but irrelevant as well.

So are the internet too

this should be number 1

18 Anime

I hope the hypocritical long running anime (including One Piece) will all be gone by then. Ps good luck

I always liked anime but good things never last

It won't last long in the future.

All good things come to an end

19 Porn

I don't know but it might still be relevant in 2030s.

I will be let the porn stuff die in 2030

20 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.

21 Bad Fanfiction

If fanfictions are being made in the future, it's unknown.
