Teens Are Leaving Facebook For Twitter : It's Official

Teens Are Leaving FacebookNot only Facebook is no longer the most popular social network among teenagers, but now we can officially confirm they are leaving the site for Twitter's sake.
Even though the social media king has recently granted its teenage users to post publicly, it seems that didn't stop them from using Twitter and Instagram at an increasing rate. Why? Well, there's just too much drama and gossip to handle on Facebook.
This latest news come from a survey from the Pew Internet & American Life Project, which concluded that even though 94% of teenage social media users still have Facebook accounts, more and more are jumping ship to Twitter and Instagram because of what Pew found as "increasing adult presence, people sharing excessively, and stressful 'drama.'"

If you still doubt the above, maybe this confirmation from Facebook's CFO David Ebersam will change your mind: "We did see a decrease in daily users partly among younger teens," he said. He also went to add that they are not fleeing Facebook completely, but using the site less frequently.
For the first time, teens now consider Instagram the most important social network on the Internet, according to a semi-annual survey conducted by Piper Jaffray. Instagram replaces Twitter, which just last fall surpassed Facebook's place in the top spot. A year and a half ago,nearly half of teens named Facebook their favorite social site.

The results of Piper Jaffray's latest teen survey, which polled 7,500 people, offer some hard numbers through which to trace the fickle allegiances of young people online.
As the chart below shows, teens may be updating their statuses today, tweeting tomorrow and 'gramming the day after that. The only given? If you've got them now, you'll probably lose them soon.
In less than two years, the share of teens who picked Facebook as the top social media service in their lives has nearly halved from 42 to 23 percent, while Twitter flirted briefly with being their go-to social site before being overtaken by Instagram. Since the fall of 2012, the number of teens who see Instagram as the epicenter of their social lives has more than doubled, from 12 to 30 percent.
This nomadic impulse has had social media sites chasing after teens. And they've actually had some success: What teens have really done over the past two years is leave Facebook for Facebook.
For most of its life, Facebook merely cloned the competition. Yet starting with its acquisition of Instagram in 2012, Facebook has embarked on a unite-and-conquer strategy, seeking to expand its empire and hold on to our time by buying any service on which we socialize. Likewise, Twitter and Yahoo, with services like Vine and Tumblr, respectively, have tried to ensure that when teens ditch them, they'll jump to one of their other offerings. It's the fashion world's model, adapted for tech: Social networks are seasonal, so you'd better have the next trendy offering ready to woo the especially-jumpy -- and especially-engaged -- teen audience.
