SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— If you have ever felt the need to take a break from Facebook, you are not alone. A new study by the Pew Internet and American Life Project found that 61 percent of those surveyed said they have taken an extended break from the site.
The study also found that a number of users said they are spending less time on Facebook than they did a year ago.
I thought privacy would be high on the list for reasons as to why people are not participating as much, but that only contributed to four percent of the people surveyed who no longer use it or are on a break. Only one percent did not like sharing or posting.
