Viacom executive Kodi Foster says that the internet is from a past age, apps are about to come to an end and we’ll all start living digitally in messaging apps

 

TRANSCRIPT:

The Internet is dead. What I really mean by that is that the World Wide Web is dead. It’s essentially cloud storage for social media data.

When you think about it, how many times are you really on a dot com anymore? Maybe Google? Everything else you’re probably doing is through an app or through messaging.

Then messaging is actually going to even be bigger than apps in the next three to four years. Surfing the Web isn’t really a thing anymore, and it’s probably not coming back. That’s where we are as far as the Internet is today. I think it’s only going to keep moving in that direction.
