More facebook fatigue

According to CNet’s news site, it’s not just you. Tuning out Facebook for weeks at a time is commonplace, according to the Pew Internet and American Life Project, which found that a majority of the current Facebook users it surveyed have at one time or another tired to the point of avoiding the social-networking site… The Pew study found that 61 percent of the Facebook users who responded have taken extended, weeks-long breaks from the site. Those who have taken Facebook sabbaticals did so for the obvious reasons: 21 percent were too busy, 10 percent lost interest, and 10 percent felt it was a waste of time… Pew’s most disconcerting finding, at least if you’re betting on Facebook’s long-term success, underscores what the social network warned its investors about last week: the cool kids are so over Facebook. According to the survey, 38 percent of Facebook users ages 18 to 29 say that in 2013 they expect to spend less time using the site.
