Why Are Teens Leaving Facebook? [VIDEO]

Gotta say, it came as quite a surprise to me when I happened upon a story about the phenomenon–that’s what I’m calling it–of teens departing Facebook for other forms of social media.

See, here’s what I’m hearing from my friends:

“I get so sick and tired of Facebook and all the political crap.” “I don’t care what so-and-so is fixing for dinner.” “It doesn’t matter to too many people that you need to go to Walgreen’s.”

They may not be exact replicas of certain Facebook comments, but they work as an amalgam.

But these are adults we’re talking about. And it doesn’t surprise me. As we get older, we have less tolerance for sharing every minute aspect of our lives. But kids? Kids are different. They want to network with as many as possible. Facebook is a virtual “hangout.” But now, teenagers are getting tired of it and fleeing to the likes of Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and others.

And why, might you ask? Well , Rick Newman with The Exchange reports on five reasons teens are leaving Facebook. And, you know, they all make perfect sense to me. Parents, ads, and phonies are just parts of the problem.

Goodbye, Facebook. Hello, Snapchat. (Whatever that is.)
