Hmmm,

A new Pew Research Center poll finds that a huge group of users, 61 percent, are taking breaks from Facebook…When asked why users were abandoning Facebook, 21 percent said they have run out of time to check in with the site. Some 10 percent “pointed toward a general lack of interest in the site,” an equal 10 percent said it lacked “compelling content,” another 9 percent said it was too full of “drama” and “excessive gossip” from friends, and 8 percent worried that they were becoming addicts
