Smartphones are in and Facebook is out, according to a new study
by Common Sense a non-profit that researches kids and their relationship to media and technology.
After surveying over 1,000 teenagers, Common Sense found that 90 percent of teens owned a smartphone
, over double what that number was in 2012. Social media
use has also climbed, increasing by double digits in the six years since Common Sense last conducted this study. Facebook is no longer the main media site for most teens, with the number who cited the site as their primary social media falling to a small minority. Luckily some things never change, and a rebellious, social media-less minority remained among respondents.
