A study published today indicates that US adults are making changes to the way they use Facebook. Over a quarter of US adults have removed the app from their phone, and an even greater number of users have taken a break from using Facebook altogether. A survey conducted by the Pew Research Center found that Facebook users ages 18 and older have taken the following actions within the past year: 54% of users have adjusted their privacy settings, 42% have taken a break from checking Facebook for several weeks or longer, 26% have deleted the Facebook app from their phone, 74% have done at least one of the above, This data becomes more telling when broken down into age groups. For example, 44% of users ages 18 to 29 have deleted the Facebook app, compared to just 12% of users ages 65 and older.
