Nearly half of young users have deleted Facebook from their phone in the last year, says study

Pew surveyed more than 3,400 U.S. Facebook users in May and June, and found that a whopping 44% of those ages 18 to 29 say they’ve deleted the app from their phone in the last year.

Overall, 26 percent of survey respondents say they deleted the app, while 42 percent have “taken a break” for several weeks or more, and 54 percent have adjusted their privacy settings.

Note that the survey measured only the core Facebook app, not Facebook-owned Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger.

The writing is on the wall? But then, Facebook is nicely covered thanks to Instagram and WA.

Atleast for now.
