Why Is Facebook Losing So Many Users?
Facebook is still the King, Queen, Prince and probably the Duke of social media, but that’s not stopping the growing trend of people leaving Facebook. So the obvious question is why?
There are a lot of reasons that people might be straying from Facebook, but it looks like the main factor is overkill.
According to a new Pew survey, 61% of people have taken a break from the social networking site for several weeks at a time.
Another big reason for taking the break was just a lack of free time. The survey found 21% of those took an extended break because they didn’t have time, about 10% said they weren’t interested, while another 10% said Facebook was a waste of time.
It’s not all doom and gloom for the Zuckerberg army though. Fifty-nine percent say the site is as important as it was to them last year and 12% say it’s more important than it was 12 months ago. A whopping 69% intend to spend the same amount of time on Facebook in 2013 as they did last year, with 27% spending cutting back.
Have you found yourself cutting back on Facebook at all? If so, what was the main reason?
