Facebook is fast becoming the internet's parent pasture for recently replicated humans who've decided that absolutely everyone in their immediate (and not-so-immediate) social circle needs to see a 60-photo series of their new infant hiding behind a sofa to take a dump in its tiny pants. Like a monkey. A small, hairless monkey that knows how to lie and express monosyllabic thoughts. Teens don't want to see anybody else's infant monkeyperson, which is why they're fleeing Facebook forevsies.
The Great Teen Facebook Flight isn't shocking news, and it's been pointed out before that younger people are avoiding what is increasingly becoming the social media site for people "of a certain age," i.e. an old age. A recent (and extensive) European study, though, confirmed that Facebook is "dead and buried" to older European teenagers, who've all been fleeing the Facebook galleon for Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Snapchat. Since European teens are ahead of the curve on everything, it's only a matter of time before their parochial, arithmetic-challenged American counterparts also set fire to the desiccated corpse of Facebook and perform a ritual dance around it (metaphorically).
