We all know sites like Facebook and Twitter can be a pain, particularly when it comes to privacy. Have you ever taken a break from social media?
A new survey from the Pew Research Center showed that 61 per cent of current Facebook users had taken a break from the site at one time or another, for a period of several weeks or more. 20 per cent of non-Facebook users said they used to be on the site but quit entirely (something we're a little familiar with ourselves). Reasons varied from being too busy to a lack of interest and even "excessive gossip or drama from their friends".
We know a lot of you don't use the site at all, but for those of you who do, have you ever taken a break? Tell us about it in the comments below.
