While we may all think that the world is addicted to social media sites like twitter and facebook, that may not be so!! In a new study, one in four young people are bored with social media sites.

Some 24 percent of 18 to 29-year-olds admit to using social media increasingly less than when they first signed up, while 31 per cent said the fun of social media is wearing off. But a survey by technology research firm Gartner also found that 37 percent of respondents claim to be using social networks more.

While it may be true that more and more of us are getting bored on social media sites, perhaps this is why facebook has made so many changes and/or additions to their site in recent weeks. With the additional features, perhaps facebook knows we are simply getting bored scrolling down a timeline, and thus are giving us more to "play with" while on their site.
