"95 percent of teens (12 – 17) use the internet, and 81 percent of them use social media sites. Facebook is by far the most heavily adopted social site, with 94 percent of social media teens reporting they have a profile there."
I’ll give you the most logical conclusion kids are ditching Facebook—one that none of the articles I read on the Great Teenage Facebook Exodus mentioned. And the evidence that supports the theory is right there in the Piper Jaffray survey. But first let’s define Facebook.
What is Facebook to most people over the age of 25? It’s a never-ending class reunion mixed with an eternal late-night dorm room gossip session mixed with a nightly check-in on what coworkers are doing after leaving the office. In other words, it’s a place where you go to keep tabs on your friends and acquaintances.
another round of edits completed; this time i changed the layout a bit, too. more importantly, i’ve begun chopping the book up by adding much smaller subsection headers. i’m trying to make it sound less “up its own ass” and bring some of its overstyling back down to earth.
i’d like to do one last round of edits, in which i add a little bit of new content, rearrange pieces that are currently in the wrong place, and again review the notes i’ve gotten from readers already.
then i’m going to write up some kind of book proposal to see if i can get it formally published. fun times.
