Survey Shows Millennials Are Burned Out On Social Media, But Will It Last? 3/20/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Lately I’ve been so tired of Facebook that I’ve wanted to delete my account and be done with it, and it looks like I’m not the only one.

The New York Post reported on a poll that found more than half of users between 18-34 are “seeking relief from social media” and that 34 percent have deleted social media accounts all together, with Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram being the most popular apps to quit.

Forty-one percent said they waste too much time on social media and 35 percent agreed that people their age are too distracted by their online lives.

It’s good to see that millennials are starting to realize the problems that social media is causing in their lives, but the majority are still no doubt spending a large amount of time on these sites.

The real test is how many of these polled will stay off the sites permanently, and not go back to open up another Facebook account because they’re afraid they’re missing out, are addicted and need the next fix, in this case, their next like or retweet.
