FADING YOUNG USERS IS THE NEW FACEBOOK TREND?

The possibility of building relationships online can be attributed to the advent of Facebook, which came into being in 2004, and opened to the world in 2006. We also know that the social media app has already completed a decade plus two years, What's more astonishing is that, the site keeps on being amazingly well known (it crossed two billion month to month clients in June 2017), but it has been losing most of the its young users now. And it would not be wrong to say that the site has reached its peak phase now. Facebook still has the lion's share of users in the social media market (so to speak). In June 2017, when Facebook touched 2 billion users, YouTube had 1.5 billion users, WeChat had 889 million, Twitter 328 million, and Snapchat was projected to have hit 255 million monthly users. Having also drawn a lot of attention for the Cambridge Analytica scandal, with its ability to influence popular opinion, and spread fake news, Facebook had become one of the defining facets of urban life in the second decade after Y2K. However, ongoing examination demonstrates that the site has reached its pinnacle. A forecast by data and analysis firm eMarketer suggests that in 2018, the number of Facebook users in the US younger than 11 will decline by 9.3%; and the number of users in the age ranges of 12 to 17 and 18 to 24 will decrease by 5.6% and 5.8%, respectively. A survey by the Pew Research Centre (http://www.pewinternet.org/2018/05/31/teens-social-media-technology-2018/) also reflects this trend. In the Centre's 2014-15 survey, 71% of respondents aged between 13 and 17 had reported being users of Facebook. In the present survey, that number is down to 51%. The prime competitors to Facebook are YouTube, Snapchat and Instagram(owned by Facebook now). Regardless of the total number of users, the number of people based on their demographics is declining. And 2018 will be the first time when the strength of adolescents on Facebook will fade. The analysts are of the view that more and more youngsters are now becoming ‘Facebook-nevers’ those who haven't used it before, and don't use it now. So as this new phase of fading Facebook users begins, let’s now watch out for something new. #lifestyleblogger#lifestyleblog#lifestylechange#lifestylephotography#lifestyles#lifestylephotrapher#lifestylebrand#lifestylechanges#lifestylebloggers#lifestyleCoach#lifestyledesign#lifestyler#lifestyleentrepreneur#lifestylegoals#lifestylebusiness#LifestyleLuxuries#lifestylefitness#lifestylechoice#lifestylegains#LifestyleMedicine#lifestyleguide#lifestylemagazine#lifestyleblogs#lifestylestore#lifestyleshoot#LIFESTYLEPHOTO#lifestylechoices#lifestylerise#lifestyleinfluencer
