Again came a news about the youngsters moving away from Facebook as a new study by the European Union-funded University College London has found that those FB youngsters migrating to Snapchat, WhatsApp, Instagram and even to Twitter.
Daniel Miller, material sciences professor at UCL said in the post based-on the study that Facebook is becoming “dead and buried” to teenagers and pointed that those teenagers are migrating to the new social services, while the parents of these teenagers are still active at Facebook.
The major cause for this mass migrating is said to be the worry of being spied by their parents as they began to get the friend requests from their parents.
The report also stated that the youngsters are very much less concerned about the government or corporate spying.
“It is nothing new that young people care about style and status in relation to their peers, and Facebook is simply not cool anymore,” Miller said.
Another cause of the mass migration is the popularity of new social services and the changing landscape of media as the disappearing messaging platform Snapchat has got huge number of teenage users and we recently reported about the users migrating to Snapchat from facebook.
Even, WhatsApp becomes the leader in mobile messaging market by overtaking Facebook messenger, with its millions of active users. Facebook also tried to acquire WhatsApp and offered $3 billion to SnapChat founders, but the deal hasn’t concluded as expected by the number one social network.
