I'm finding I look at Facebook less and less. It's becoming profoundly boring. Even my one family member who entertained me regularly with her outrageously irritating posts has quietened down.

I heard somewhere that the 'yoof' are not using it that much either (my one teenage connection seems to either have blocked me or has just stopped posting).

Anyone else finding the same? What are the yoof using instead? Or are they now actually, you know, talking to each other?

Use Instagram every day, twitter occasionally.

Go into Facebook every few days but have never been that into it.

For the yoof, it's all about Snapchat and instagram.

The very fact I have no idea what this means speaks volumes about my age.

You're already on someone elses but you don't realise it.

The ironic thing imho is that remote viewing is available through technology for the first time in history.

Can I just say I have literally no idea what the last few posts mean - and I thought I was moderately tech 'aware' (although not participant) !!

i think being tech aware would probably put you marginally ahead of the remote community in the reality stakes....not by much, mind... Smile

I noticed that FaceBook is starting to become a page where people brag about the life they don't really have Smile
