Teens Getting Bored of Facebook

I was reading an article in the Boston Herald about a father that paid his kid $200 to stay off Facebook until the end of the school year.

Is Facebook losing face?
[bostonherald.com...]

But, it seems like it was "easy money" for the kid -- she was already bored of Facebook.

..and it seems a lot of other people are too.

"...a new Pew Research Center report that says more than 60 percent of Facebook users have given up the site for weeks at a time because they’re bored, too."

What I have seen on Facebook so far is this: Many people are turning their life into a big lie.

Meaning many spend an awful lot of time pretending what a great life they have, when in reality they don't and it's average at best, wasting their time posting pictures of their instagram filtered lunch. Instagram is a pretty good sympbol what facebook has become to many. Take your everyday average life, put a filter on it and pretend it's great art. I mean: Why do people post: "Finally some time for myself, reading a book, enjoying the quiet." when in reality they sit at home alone and are bored to hell?

Probably many are getting exhausted from this constant pretending.

Answer A: You can pretty well count on the fingers of one hand the things teens do not get bored with... and none of those things were invented in our lifetime.

Answer B: Facebook and its relatives weren't really designed for people who get into things slowly and build up long-term commitments, were they?

:))) That's just the perfectly natural desire of life longing for itself.

My teen daughter announced to me about 6 months ago that most of her facebook friends are now using twitter more.

My guess it's because of usability and access.
