More users taking breaks from Facebook – The Independent Florida Alligator: Local & State

Sixty-seven percent of American adults who use the Internet are Facebook users. Of those, 61 percent report they have voluntarily taken a break of several weeks or longer from the website at some time in the past, according to a study conducted by the Pew Research Center as part of its Internet and American Life Project.

The largest group of study participants said they stayed off Facebook as a result of being too busy with other demands or not having enough time to spend on the site. Other reasons included a general lack of interest in the site, excessive gossip from others or concerns they were spending too much time logged on.
