Digital & Media, Marketing

Teens are leaving Facebook and decreased the usage of the platform because they started to loose their interest for the platform, according to a study published by eMarketer and compiled by OTX and the fashion site Roiworld.

According to the study, one in five teens with profile on Facebook decreased or discontinued using the social network starting April 2010, the trend being more and more obvious in the last six months.

The same study also mentions that 9% of teen internet users said that they had a Facebook profile, but abandoned it completely.

Also there might generate some worries, this trend of loosing interest isn’t that obvious or serious as it is for MySpace, that stopped being used by 22% of teens. Nor YouTube and Twitter are careless when it comes about loosing users, their abandonment rates being of 15%.
