A new survey indicates a growing number of people are less attracted to social media sites such as Facebook. The poll conducted by Reuters and the Ipsos research firm found roughly a third of social media users are not excited about the experience, and the sentiment seems to be growing. The survey found that users aged 18 to 34 were the most active, while 29 per cent of users over the age of 55 called themselves regular users. Though the research was designed to look at ways for social media to capitalize on current user habits, the results found that a majority of users had never purchased a product they saw advertised on the site. After reviewing the results, researchers said they think people who use social media a great deal soon reach a point they call, “Facebook fatigue.” This response leads them to spend less time checking in with friends and browsing profiles and turn their attention elsewhere.
