A new Pew Research survey on Facebook’s users, released 10 years after the social network’s founding, sheds new light on how relationships are changing in the age of social media. While there are more people than ever using Facebook, only a small percentage of users are sharing details about their lives every day. Of Facebook’s more than 1.2 billion users, only 10% update their status daily, while only 4% update it more than once a day, according to the survey. About 15% of users comment on photos more than once a day. The survey suggests that a significant portion of Facebook is a one-way conversation buoyed by Internet voyeurs who relish the ability to document their lives with their friends or the public.
