Most online teens (90%) use at least one social networking site—with Facebook still their top social destination—but nearly one-fifth (19%) of teens who have created a Facebook profile say they no longer visit the social site or are using it less, according to a survey from Roiworld.

Some teens complain about too much activity on Facebook: 27% cite too many notifications, 21% say they got tired of keeping up with Facebook activity, and 20% cite too many ads.
