Facebook a necessary ‘burden’ for teenagers

Far from being the ultimate way to connect with peers, young adults are now viewing Facebook use as a ‘necessary burden‘.

Facebook has become a “social burden” for teens, write the authors of the Pew report. “While Facebook is still deeply integrated in teens’ everyday lives, it is sometimes seen as a utility and an obligation rather than an exciting new platform that teens can claim as their own.”

How do you view Facebook? Do you feel that you’ll miss out?
