Surprise: Teenagers Say Facebook Isn't Their Most Used Site

Business Insider

Tumblr beat out Facebook in a recent survey of what teenagers use online.

Inspired by Branch co-founder Josh Miller's recent post about how his 15-year-old sister uses the Internet, Y Combinator partner Garry Tan surveyed a bunch of teenagers and young adults to find out which services they use regularly. 

With help from YC-backed Survata, Tan surveyed a total of 1,038 people from two different groups: people aged 13-18, and 19-25. 

Here's what he found:

  • Tumblr is the most used site. 59% of all respondents reported using Tumblr regularly, while only 54% reported using Facebook regularly.
  • Facebook is still doing well among kids. 55% of those aged 13-18 reported using the social network regularly.
  • Snapchat appeals more to the younger generation, with 13% of those aged 13-18 reporting using it regularly. 
  • Only 4% of respondents aged 19-25 reported using Snapchat regularly.
