While most people think of Millennials being obsessed with social media, a new report reveals they may not be all that enthralled by it any more.
A new poll of Millennials ages 18 to 24 finds that many are turning away from social media sites. In fact, more than 50% say they are “seeking relief” from it. What’s more, 34% have deleted social media accounts, with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tinder the most popular apps to quit, with Snapchat still pretty popular.
But that's not all. Overall, 41% of Millennials admit they waste too much time on social media, and 35% say their peers are too distracted by their online activity.
Of course, not everyone has given it up, with those who are still active on social media using it for more than just sharing pictures and posting their thoughts. The survey finds that 65% use social media to follow brand profiles, with 43% making purchases through social media, and 57% saying a celebrity endorsement on social media influenced their decision to purchase an item.
