Significant shares of Facebook users have taken steps in the past year to reframe their relationship with the social media platform.
- Just over half of Facebook users ages 18 and older (54%) say they have adjusted their privacy settings in the past 12 months, according to a new Pew Research Center survey.
- Around four-in-ten (42%) say they have taken a break from checking the platform for a period of several weeks or more.
- Around a quarter (26%) say they have deleted the Facebook app from their cellphone.
All told, some 74% of Facebook users say they have taken at least one of these three actions in the past year.
