An article I read in the Toronto Star the other day surprised me as it reported, “Facebook remains the most used social media site among American teens ages 13 to 17.” I had expected other social media tools (e.g. Instagram) to be more popular with teens. However, according to a recent study from the Pew Research Center, “Facebook was the site teens used most frequently, at 41 per cent, followed by Instagram at 20 per cent and Snapchat at 11 per cent. Boys are more likely than girls to report they visit Facebook most often — at 45 per cent versus 36 per cent of girls.” Are you surprised to learn that Facebook is still so popular with teens?
