Millennials are quitting social media and spending less time on Facebook, according to a new report. Platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram - and even the popular dating app Tinder - are seeing droves of users switch off permanently.
While many platforms struggle to keep their users, it seems picture-based messaging app Snapchat is still holding the attention of the younger generation. Most people said they were quitting because they felt it was a waste of time and social media was making them think negatively. Forty-one per cent of respondents believe they waste too much time on social media and 35 per cent found there was too much negativity. Other reasons included not using it very often and no longer being interested in the content.
