Facebook recently announced that there has been a decrease of the use of the platform among the Teenagers. This is quite a new, especially coming from Facebook. It’s a well known truth that everyone could see in their timelines, people are more concerned of what they publish.
Facebook made a startling admission in its earnings announcement this month: it was seeing a “decrease in daily users, specifically among teens”. In other words, teenagers are still on Facebook; they’re just not using it as much as they did. – The Guardian
I would tag teenagers as the early adopters of the new technologies, those who are able to transform them, reinvent its usage and set the trends for what’s coming next. If they are leaving Facebook, it means a lot.
Ahead of the next move are all the messenger apps that allow people to communicate instantly, in a private way. Social studies can put some light on it, it’s a behavioural trend whereas people share something publicly or restricted to those who want, there have always been levels of what people are willing to share or not, but the trend is out there.
