Is Facebook the new MySpace?

I asked my students today, "Which social media apps or sites do you use?" They all said Instagram, Tinder, and SnapChat, with a few mentioning FaceBook and Twitter. I've noticed colleagues and peers use Twitter heavily, and sometimes FaceBook rarely SnapChat or Instagram.
There are so many online and app resources to choose from. Instagram, snapchat, and tinder are largely visual. Twitter and facebook are text oriented with visuals as optional. Tinder - like meetup - can be just for friendship or interest based.
My question to you is: Which is most important: the platform, like FaceBook or Twitter, or the way it's used?
