Facebook reportedly losing its touch on teenagers

According to a study conducted by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, more and more teenagers in the U.S. are losing their interest in using Facebook. The reason for the "waning enthusiasm," the study shows, is due to the "increasing adult presence, people sharing excessively, and stressful 'drama.'"

The study conducted on 802 teenagers, with ages ranging from 12 to 17, also revealed that teens are resorting to other popular social networking sites like Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr because they felt like they could better express themselves on these sites. However, teens are still using Facebook because "participation is an important part of overall teenage socializing."

Facebook has responded to the reports saying, "We are always focused on making Facebook a great experience; and we're gratified that more than 1 billion people, including enormous numbers of young people, are using Facebook to connect and share."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
