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.
Most of those lapsed users have simply lost interest: 45% of surveyed teens (age 13-17) who are now using Facebook less or no longer at all cite loss of interest as their primary reason for doing so; 28% say they are more interested in other sites.
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.
Over one out of five teens (21%) say most or all of their friends no longer use Facebook, and 16% have left because their parents have joined.
