"Some of the reasons for this decline of Facebook's popularity among teens is their perception of the site's safety. According to the study, only 9% of those surveyed described Facebook as "safe" or "trustworthy". It's also not much "fun" — only 18% of teens described it as so, in contrast with 40% saying the same for Pinterest."

facebook is now acting as the infrastructure for services such as Instagram and What's App. It is also an ad network geared towards adults and not teens.

When I ask the youth how they use facebook - I am told they regard it as a contact directory - like a telephone directory, and almost nothing else. The "fun factor", being mentioned in the research, seems to be of great importance. Even if research can tell us what factors are needed to create the ultimat learning environment - the average user seems to have so many obtions to be entertained, so unless edutainment is created, very few seems to "join up".

Funny, that's how I use LinkedIn. As a contact directory.

They do. I think LinkedIn was apparently profitable from early on.
