Facebook is no longer the dominant online platform among teens

Our Social Media Accounts Are Driving Us Crazy

Back in 2015, Facebook was the undisputed king of the charts, with 71% teenagers aged 13 to 17 said they use it. Instagram, also a Facebook property, was second with 52% and Snapchat came in third with 41%.

Now, YouTube is the most popular platform among teens about 85% say they use it. Pew also notes that 45 per cent of teens say they use the internet almost constantly, nearly double from the previous survey.

Facebook is no longer the most popular social media site, as teens are ignoring it. This edition of the research found 95% of respondents own or have access to a smartphone, up from 73% when the research was conducted in 2014-15.

33% of male teens used Youtube more than females (16%), while females used Snapchat and Instagram more heavily than their male counterparts.

The news doesn't bode well for Facebook, but the company does own Instagram, a photo and video-sharing service that's been competiting fiercely with Snapchat. Seven out of 10 low-income teens said that they are using Facebook. Meanwhile, Twitter followed at 32%, and Tumblr's popularity remained the same since the 2015 survey.

Pew researchers say theres no clear consensus among teens on whether these services are good or bad for them. When the household incomes drops below $30,000 a year, teen computer access falls to 75 percent. The survey showed 45 per cent of teens said they are online nearly constantly, while another 44per cent said they're online several times a day. These mobile connections are in turn fuelling more-persistent online activities: 45 per cent of teens now say they are online on a near-constant basis.

Last year, the analyst firm Piper Jaffray reported that Snapchat, known originally for his video messages are ephemeral, was the favorite social network of teenagers of americans, 47% of them using this platform. None of the major social media platforms can now be considered a clear victor among teenagers. The margin of error is 5 percentage points.

With respect to the impact of social networks in the lives of teens, the opinions are divided: 31% of them judge the whole, positive and 24% negative overall.
