Study Finds Decreased Social Media Use Among Many Younger People

A study by technology research firm Gartner, which recently surveyed 6,295 people between the ages of 13 and 74, reveals almost a quarter of 18- to 29-year-olds use social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter less than when they first signed up for the services, with many saying the services simply aren’t that much fun anymore.

“The trend shows some social media fatigue among early adopters,” says Brian Blau, research director at Gartner. “And the fact that 31 percent of younger consumers indicated that they were getting bored with their social network is a situation that social media providers should monitor, as they will need to innovate and diversify to keep consumer attention.”

Beer-Loving Robot Prefers Tecate Over Bud Light [VIDEO]

While scientists have yet to perfect artificial intelligence, they’ve at least perfected artificial beer preference. When it comes to brewskies, this thirsty robot named DARwIn-OP know what it likes — the folks who built him over at Trossen Robotics actually programmed him to have a drink of choice. Given the option, the little guy will ignore a can of Bud Light and go for a cold Tecate every time.

It could have something to do with the colors of their respective cans, but we like to think DARwIn’s just got fond memories of a robo-bender in Mexico.
