Take a social networking vacation

New research out of the US has revealed that internet users are becoming overwhelmed by the information and drama on their social networks, and many are turning off to take social media vacations.

The study of 2000 people over the age of 18 was conducted by MyLife.com and revealed that more than 40 per cent of adult users manage multiple social networking accounts, with more than half visiting their networks more frequently than two years ago. 35 per cent of those surveyed spent more than 31 minutes a day visiting social networking’s and reading and responding to emails.

More than 50 per cent of the online users surveyed had either taken or have considered taking a ‘vacation’ from social networking in the past year, with more than 50 per cent reporting their reason for not taking a social networking vacation as ‘fear of missing out’.

    Curiously, I've never thought of this forum as "social media" but on reflection, I guess that it meets the criteria.
    I have enjoyed, and will continue to enjoy contributions to YLC but it will be a cold day in Cairo when you see me bob up on Facebook, Twitter etc.
