Baby Boomers are less active on Facebook Lately

There was a report on the web today stating theat baby boomers aged 55-65 have been using Facebook less lately. I guess the novelty has worn off after using it for about two years. Perhaps it has been replaced by Twitter. Maybe older people have realized that it has become the new world wide waste of time.

I first used Facebook to try to reach out to students at NJIT. It didn't work that way but it helped me network with people my age with similiar interests. I have used it to reconnect with people that I knew years ago. I have over 400 "friends" many of which I don't even know. For example I tried to befriend other people with the uncommon surname Slutsky. I made friends with some people I only met once. I don't plan on leaving Facebook, but maybe I should cut down my usage.
