Teens in the US are sticky to social media. The use of social media by teens has risen steadily in recent decades and has been largely a ‘south to north’ phenomenon. Today, nearly half (51%) of US teens, who ages 13 to 17, indicated that they use Facebook, notably lower than the shares who use YouTube, Instagram or Snapchat.
Take a sneak peek at the top line findings of using social media by American teens in 2018:
Data were driven from 1,058 parents who have a teen ages 13 to 17, as well as 743 teens. The surveys were conducted online and by telephone from March 7 to April 10, 2018.
The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 5.0 percentage points for the full sample of 743 teen respondents and 4.5 percentage points for the full sample of 1,058 parent respondents.
