The Pew Research Center has released a study on Facebook usage showing three trends.

Three-quarters of Facebook users have taken one of the following actions the past year: 

  • adjusted privacy settings
  • taken a break for at least a few weeks
  • deleted the app from their phone.

One in four total users had deleted the app. 

In the 18-to-29 demo, that figure rises to 44 percent!

Reasons include not using it very often, wanting more privacy, wasting too much time, and content that's not interesting/doesn't matter.

Now back to your regularly scheduled internet.
