Snapchat Preferred Social Media Platform for Teens

Snapchat Preferred Social Media Platform for Teens

San Francisco

Results of a recent survey by the nonprofit organization Common Sense Media revealed the use of social media by teenaged-youth increased dramatically during the previous six years. At least 70 percent of respondents said they use social media more than once a day, compared to 34 percent of teens who used social media in 2012. In addition, Snapchat was identified as the most popular social media platform among this demographic—41 percent identified Snapchat as the platform they use most frequently. 

Although there has been a lot of focus on the negative experiences of young people regarding their use of social media (bullying, etc.) according to the report, this does not appear to be indicative of the teen experience overall.
