Teens Drift Away From Facebook

Teen_SocialMedia_2013Like many parents, Facebook is learning that raising teenagers is hard. On Wednesday evening during its 2013 fourth quarter earnings call Facebook’s Chief Financial Officer David Ebersman said teen usage of the social network decreased in the last quarter.

“We did see a decrease in daily users, specifically among younger teens,” Ebersman said, sending down the stock from the rise it saw after earnings were announced. “We wanted to share this with you now because we get a lot of questions about teens.”

Of course, those precious teens haven’t decided to spend less time on their phones, tablets or computers interacting with friends. They have just decided to spend the time using different social networks. So where are the teens going? Here are some ideas:

  • Instagram
  • SnapChat
  • Kik
  • Whats App
  • Twitter
  • AskFm
  • Pheed
