This may not be the case elsewhere in the world, but Facebook has taken a big hit among users in the U.S. Andrew Perrin from Pew Research Center.
Just over half of Facebook users ages 18 and older (54%) say they have adjusted their privacy settings in the past 12 months, according to a new Pew Research Center survey. Around four-in-ten (42%) say they have taken a break from checking the platform for a period of several weeks or more, while around a quarter (26%) say they have deleted the Facebook app from their cellphone. All told, some 74% of Facebook users say they have taken at least one of these three actions in the past year.
But that’s what Facebook gets for abusing users and their privacy to such a large degree (not to mention how much responsibility Facebook bears for the 2016 election; shift about 70,000 votes across three states and late night talk show hosts would be on an extended vacation now).
