Once upon a time, notable purveyor of Internet goods, Reddit, released a physical magazine for the site’s users. It was an odd and quirky move, because what online-only website would go backwards and release a physical magazine? That’s not how it’s done.
When the Internet destroyed the livelihood of print outlets, they turned to the Internet to publish content. And when mobile apps started to erode the business of the Internet, media outlets quickly adapted.
But, Internet to physical magazine? That’s just wacky. Sadly, we’ll never know for sure what Facebook or Twitter would have looked like had they started out as a print magazine first.
Thanks to the fine work of Tauntr’s photoshop experts, we now have a hilarious look at what the magazines for Facebook, Yelp, Wikipedia, and Twitter might have looked like.
Facebook and Yelp are just about perfect.
