Facebook falling in popularity among teens, survey says

Facebook's popularity among teenagers has fallen markedly, according to new data from the Pew Research Center.

A survey of more than 1,300 American teens ages 13 to 17 found that teens who say they use Facebook has plummeted by nearly 40% since the center's survey from 2014 to 2015.

Comparatively, TikTok has reportedly surged in popularity, with some 67% of responders saying they ever use TikTok and 16% saying they use it nearly constantly.

YouTube tops TikTok, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, Twitch, WhatsApp, Reddit and Tumblr.

YouTube is used by 95% of teens and Instagram and Snapchat are both used by about six-in-10 teenagers.


Two of the platforms the center tracked in the earlier survey, Vine and Google+, no longer exist.
