The Pew Research Center recently published a study on Facebook users, and it contains some interesting results. According to the study, which was conducted in May and June of 2018, over a quarter of Facebook users deleted the app from their phones in the past year. 42% say they've taken a break from checking Facebook for several weeks, and over half say they adjusted their privacy settings. The researchers also found that younger users reduced their Facebook activity more than older ones, on average. There are, however, age differences in the share of Facebook users who have recently taken some of these actions. Most notably, 44% of younger users (those ages 18 to 29) say they have deleted the Facebook app from their phone in the past year, nearly four times the share of users ages 65 and older (12%) who have done so. Similarly, older users are much less likely to say they have adjusted their Facebook privacy settings in the past 12 months: Only a third of Facebook users 65 and older have done this, compared with 64% of younger users. In earlier research, Pew Research Center has found that a larger share of younger than older adults use Facebook. Still, similar shares of older and younger users have taken a break from Facebook for a period of several weeks or more.
