Pew Study: Facebook Users Are Getting Hip As 1 in 4 People surveyed in the US Have Deleted or Changed Privacy Settings in The App From Their Phone
Thanks to the information that was revealed after the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Facebook users are getting more hip to the ins and outs of the company’s use of their personal information. And it turns out that according to the latest Pew Research Center study, one in four Americans has deleted the Facebook app from their phones. That’s a huge number of people, but considering the implications of keeping the app on the phone, it’s not altogether too surprising.
And while just one in four people deleted the app, the study found that 74 percent of U.S. adult users either deleted the app, changed privacy settings, or have taken a break. This included 54 percent of people who updated their privacy settings, and 42 percent of people who chose to stop using the app for “several weeks” or longer, according to the Daily Herald.
For those who do still use Facebook it is also worth otherwise considering a 3rd party app such as Friendly (Android and iOS) that will give better control over the feed, block ads, filter out posts based on keywords, etc. More Android 3rd party apps at https://www.androidauthority.com/best-facebook-apps-for-android-527190/.
