Facebook use in the United States is on the decline.
Facebook’s efforts to crack down on misinformation and sensational content have reduced the time spent at the leading social network eroding, researchers said Tuesday.
The average amount of time US adults spent at Facebook dropped by three minutes per day last year and will likely decrease by another minute next year, to a total of 37 minutes daily, according to the research firm eMarketer.
The report suggests that Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg’s efforts to focus on safety and remove divisive and hateful content could be having an economic impact.
“Facebook’s continued loss of younger adult users, along with its focus on down-ranking clickbait posts and videos in favor of those that create ‘time well spent,’ resulted in less daily time spent on the platform in 2018 than we had previously expected,” said eMarketer principal analyst Debra Aho Williamson.
“Less time spent on Facebook translates into fewer chances for marketers to reach the network’s users.”
I honestly have no idea why anybody continues to use this horrible website. You can’t trust them with your data and the site is heavily policed by a thought police army.
The problem is that they lured people on to the site by making it “cool.” And then once they got huge numbers of people on to the site, they started engaging in all sorts of retarded fuckery. But overall it is good to see people disengaging from it.
The entire operation should be immediately regulated by the government as a utility so that it serves the public’s interest. Right now, it serves the interest of only the kikes who run this horrible enterprise.
