Will Facebook’s Changes Drive Away the Teen Crowd?

Read the full article on by Monica Vila on Mashable

Who is using the internet? Pretty much everyone, but not in the same sites anymore and not for the same reasons.

With so many moms and dads clogging up its pages, Facebook is no longer the cool place to hang out for under-18s.

  1. Sweet post. This article is so true. I especially liked your excerpt you chose to use ” With so many moms and dads clogging up it’s pages, Facebook is no longer the cool place to hangout for under -18’s.” I remember the days of myspace where one didn’t have to worry about parents because no person over 20 was on myspace lol. But now facebook has caught the interest of all ages and it has gained popularity among a different crowd. People can no longer have these secret lives and likes that they did on myspace, but now their likes, posts, pictures and everything they write is visible for everyone. So not only is facebook serving a different crowd but it is also loosing popularity among another crowd. Good post and topic.

  2. As I scroll down my Facebook news feed, I realize just how much adults are using Facebook now-a-days. Both my parents are owners of an account, and the things they post often show up on my news feed – cluttered with their adult friends comments. I find myself using Facebook less and less but I do not credit that to adults using Facebook more often. I think its just because it’s old news and not necessarily new or exciting. I see many of the same things over and over… mostly from those I don’t particularly “care” about. Even though Facebook is so huge, I do think younger people will begin to lose interest because we’re in an ever-changing world.
