Teens Falling Away From Facebook

Ninety-five percent of teens have access to a smartphone, and 45 percent of teens are almost constantly online

but younger Internet users do not connect on Facebook as much as their older peers do, suggests a Pew Research Center study released Thursday.

Although Facebook dominated social media across all age groups over the past decade, it has taken a backseat to YouTube, Instagram and Snapchat among today’s teens.

Facebook is still used by more than half of all teens aged 13 to 17, the survey results indicate.

Fifty-one percent of those polled reported using the social networking service. Yet a whopping 85 percent reported actively using YouTube, 72 percent said they regularly used Instagram, and 69 percent were on Snapchat.
