Kids Like Quick Exchanges With Friends They See Every Day

In “Understanding Facebook’s  Lost Generation of Teens,” a Fast Company story by Ryan Bradley high school students who rush to pickup their smartphones after school explain why they aren’t too interested in Facebook. Their parents and teachers are on Facebook, but that doesn’t seem to be the main reason that makes kids think Facebook isn’t cool.  They already know who their friends are and they find other tools like Intsagram, Kik, Snatchat! and texting a lot more useful for their social interactions. Some estimates say that a million kids a year are quitting Facebook, the story reports. Even Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg has said “coolness is done for us.”
