Facebook fatigue has been a hot topic for the best of the past 4 years, i.e. the generalisation of Facebook itself. 4 years later we have tried to find evidence of this phenomenon. As they couldn’t find any such evidence in the literature, James Barisic and Yann Gourvennec decided to launch a survey based on US, UK and French audiences. On January 25, at 09:00 am CET (08:00 am UK), James Barisic will present the results of this exclusive survey during the Community Management Appreciation Day 2016. This survey results will be commented by 4 leading consultants from various parts of the World. Following the presentation, a whitepaper will also be made available to the audience during this presentation.
