Facebook and its 900 million users may be losing interest amongst a vital demographic. Teens according to the Los Angeles Times say that "THE" social network no longer possesses that all evasive "cool factor;"
"Facebook is just not the big fad anymore," said a 15-year-old. Twitter, Tumblr, texting, and other mobile apps are kicking Zuckerberg's site. One of the key appealing aspects of other networks , according to these teens, is more privacy from their parents.
Facebook is huge with baby boomers. Facebook's proportion of 50- to 64-year-old members is second only to LinkedIn.Three quarters of US based moms logged into FB during March.
What teens say and what they do should be no surprise. "Just because teens are using other services like Twitter and Tumblr more—and they are using these services in huge amounts—doesn't mean they're using Facebook less." Although 8 of 10 teenagers use social networks, like Twitter, 93% of them regularly use their Facebook accounts.
