Facebook Is Not So Funny For Many Users

Amazon started paying people to promote the product


At some point last year, Facebook users began sharing jokingly reviews on the slicer, a small household and banana-shaped yellow appliance. They were sharing with friends who were sharing with other friends. Soon after, Amazon started paying people to promote the product and reviews became ubiquitous in the social network.

At one point, the jokes became boring. But it arose again and again, as the grandpa tells that joke all the time and that it already causes nobody laugh.

The phenomenon of slicer has become common in Facebook, and this invites us to reflect: has this social site becoming boring?


Many users, especially teens and twenties are bored of the site


Many users, especially teens and twenties are bored of the site, of the endless tirade of comments, photos that no one is interested, and the inexplicable requests to connect.

Has Facebook become another one of our many daily tasks? Does it have sunk the most important moments in the lives of our loved ones, in the mud of comments and superficial jokes?

"When I had Facebook for the first time it seemed the most. He who had Facebook was part of the group because everybody had it", says Rachel Fernandez, an 18 year old girl that was registered on the site four or five years ago.

"But, Facebook has become a king of boring", she says.

61% of Facebook users have taken a break due to reasons such as too many gossip or boredom


They always spoke of the imminent decline of Facebook. Some say that people have tired; others say it lost its appeal when more people started getting it. A recent study by the Pew Center for the Study of the Internet and the Family recently found that 61% of Facebook users have taken a break due to reasons such as "too many gossip" or "boredom". Others said that they simply do not have time for that.

If Facebook users will decrease or even less often connect, the company's earnings could be affected. The site, which is maintained through advertising, reported profits of $5.1 billion in 2012, compared with 3.7 billion during the previous year.

But so far, for every person who has left the site, several more persons are joining. Facebook has over one billion users worldwide. Of these, 618 million check their account daily.
