American Teens EN masse, leave Facebook

Our Social Media Accounts Are Driving Us Crazy

Facebook has been dethroned and is no longer the social media platform of choice for users between the ages of 13-17, according to a new Pew Research Center survey.

"Again, lower-income teens are far more likely than those from higher income households to say Facebook is the online platform they use most often (22% v 4%)", states the report, titled Teens, Social Media & Technology 2018.

In fact, according to the recent Pew report on teen social media behavior, "no other platform was used by a clear majority of teens at the time".

Most experts are concerned about social media use by younger individuals.

The White House announced four days later that Melania Trump had been hospitalised to treat a kidney condition. But she remained in the hospital until May 19, with Grisham telling CNN that she was "in high spirits".

Another interesting characteristic found in both reports is that Facebook use is more popular among lower incomes.

Survey respondents included 1,058 parents and 73 teenagers.

33% of male teens used Youtube more than females (16%), while females used Snapchat and Instagram more heavily than their male counterparts. The world's largest social network has finally been eclipsed in popularity by YouTube, Snapchat and Facebook-owned Instagram.

Facebook did outpace Twitter, used by just 32 percent of teens surveyed, and Tumblr, which drew only 9 percent. Seventy-two percent of teens said they use Instagram (15 percent said they use it most often), and 69 percent of teens use Snapchat (35 percent said most often).

For NZ teens you need NZ online data, and if you are going to use articles to base some of your parental or even advertising decisions on, its best you use the data that is relevant for your region. Those reporting a more positive view noted how social media helps users connect to friends and family while those believing it to have a negative impact pointed to bullying and rumor-spreading on social media sites.

New studies reveal that YouTube, which is owned by Google, is the most omnipotent internet platform among American teenagers, while Facebook continues to experience declining usage rates. 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.

The social media landscape looked markedly different just three years ago. While 31% of the teens described the effect as positive the 24% of the respondents said it affects negatively.
