Blame the Cambridge Analytica scandal–or perhaps the fact that Facebook is just exhausting. Either way, more users the ever are reevaluating their relationship with the social newtwork. That’s according to a new poll by the Pew Research Center. Matter of fact, a staggering 74% of people polled said they have reduced or adjusted their usage of Facebook in some way over the past year. Specifically, Pew reports:

  • 54% say they have adjusted their privacy settings in the past 12 months.
  • 42% say they have taken a break from checking the platform for a period of several weeks or more.
  • 26% say they have deleted the Facebook app from their cell phone.

The findings were gathered from a survey of adults aged 18 and over conducted May 29-June 11, 2018.
