44% of Americans 18-27 Deleted Their Facebook App in the Past Year

The Infinite Brief
According to a new study by the Pew Research Center, 54 percent of Facebook users ages 18 and older have adjusted their privacy settings in the wake of revelations that Facebook repeatedly failed to protect consumer data.

The study also notes that around 42 percent of Facebook users have chosen to take a break from the social platform of several weeks or more.

Pew found that age largely determined whether or not users were likely to delete Facebook entirely, with 44 percent of younger users (ages 18-27) having deleted the app in recent months, compared with just 12 percent of users 65 or older.
