Are you still addicted to Facebook? Or have you taken a break from the social media site?

In a recent study done by Pew Research Center, as many as 74% of Americans have taken some sort of action to decrease their time-spent on Facebook this year.

This information comes after an extreme amount of publicity regarding Facebook and their privacy policies surfaced, along with numerous lawsuits regarding the matter. Seems that many Americans feel they are being exploited. Hordes are also turned off by the platform’s (not-so-secret) left wing political agenda.

The survey results are below:

  • 74% have either taken a break or deleted the site completely
  • 54% have adjusted their privacy settings
  • 42% have taken a break from checking it for several weeks or longer
  • 26% (1 out of 4) have deleted the site’s app from their phone

So it appears being “displeased” with Facebook has somewhat united the nation. Are you still using Facebook? Take our Q105 Twitter Poll and let us know.
