So we can officially say internet became way too centralized.
Gallery? Use Instagram.
Communication? Only Facebook.
Microblog? Twitter.
Videos? YouTube.
Search engine? Google.
If any of these sites will be shut down, there will be problem for current internet users. They will need to set up new service. And R.I.P. these data. Try to use multiple services for this. You will lose only part if it will get shut down. At least Wikipedia won something once.

 Discoverability: we use centralization of services to solve the fact that my phone and your phone don't know about each other (yet), and so the best we've come up with (yet) is for these two to be (at best) introduced via a centralized service, (at worst) proxied via a centralized service.

Only if you are too mainstream. Besides, I think people have backup anyway, especially Youtube creators. They probably have a copy of their vids in a hard drive, and one on the cloud too. If any of these services fail, that's not much of a problem.

What you should be worrying are how these companies are trying to build monopolies, sometimes buying out emerging rivals just to avoid having any threats to them.
