Bob Sirott`s One More Thing about teens and Facebook

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

One more thing about teenagers and Facebook. Various surveys and focus group studies have recently reported what you already know if you have kids. Facebook isn't cool anymore.

Even Facebook, in their annual report admitted it, saying their business could be harmed due to younger users engaging with other products as a substitute for Facebook. They pointed out that some of their users have left Facebook for other services such as Instagram.

I knew this would happen once parents starting getting on Facebook. Kids tend not to like something mom and dad like. They want their own thing.

That was the entire basis of rock and roll. We loved it more because our parents hated it. It was our own music.

But don't let junior intimidate you. Stay with Facebook. New medical research has shown that adults over 65 who use Facebook improve their cognitive function on memory tests by 25 percent.
