More Teens Choose Instagram Over Twitter And Facebook


According to PiperJaffray's latest report on the preferences of American teens, Instagram continues to rise in popularity among teenagers. According to the report, 32 percent of U.S. teens named Instagram the most important social network to them personally, up from just 17 percent in Spring 2013. Instagram's rise comes at the expense of Facebook and Twitter who were chosen by 14 and 24 percent, respectively, in the latest edition of the survey.

Facebook in particular continues to lose its appeal to the youth, although another recent survey suggests that it is still the most-widely used social network among young Americans. Outside the Top 3, Snapchat is quickly rising in popularity. The app that let's its users share disposable photos/messages was the number 1 choice for 13 percent of the respondents and could soon eclipse Facebook in terms of popularity among America's youth.
