A Nigerian man, who had recently been released from prison after several years of incarceration, expressed surprise and confusion upon learning that the once-popular chatting app, 2go, was no longer widely used. The man, who had been imprisoned in 2008, noticed significant changes in the digital landscape since his return.
2go was a prominent mobile instant messenger and social network in Africa, dominating the social media scene for five years.
However, it has lost its former prominence, with a decline in users despite still being functional. The man’s reaction to this transformation was captured in a video shared on TikTok by his friend, @kayhandsome5.
The video was captioned,
“This is my friend who went to prison in 2008 and came back last week, asking me, ‘Why is everyone offline on 2go?‘”
