Number of teens using Facebook crashes as YouTube becomes platform of choice

Tik-Tok was the unsurprising runner-up, with 67% saying they use it and 16% admitted they’re on the app almost constantly. But it wasn’t all bad news for Meta; Instagram, which it owns alongside Facebook, took third place with 62% of teens using it, 10% of whom say they’re scrolling through pictures and videos almost all the time.

Snapchat was another service to see its use among teens increase since 2015, going from 41% to 59%. Twitter and Tumblr both fell, by 10% and 9%, respectively. Twitch (20%), WhatsApp (17%), and Reddit (14%) weren’t included in the survey seven years ago.
