A new report says about 61-percent of Facebook users have taken a break from the site. Reasons range from being busy to getting bombarded with "too much drama."
A Pew survey released Tuesday says that of American adults who use the Internet, 67-percent are on Facebook, making it the dominant online social network in the country.
But Facebook users come and go. One-fifth of Internet users who don't use Facebook say they have used it at one point.
People's reasons for a Facebook break are varied, the top being too busy. Privacy and security concerns were low on the list. The study of 1,006 U.S. adults was done in December. It has a margin of error of 3.6 percentage points.
