Social Media Sites Teens Use, 2011 & 2012 [TABLE]

Table - Social Media Sites Teens Use

When asked where they maintain profiles or accounts, some 94% of teen social media users say they have a Facebook profile, and 81% say that Facebook is the profile they use most often. One in four (26%) teen social media users say that they have a profile or account on Twitter (with 7% saying that Twitter is the profile they use most often), and 11% have a profile or account on Instagram (3% say that Instagram is the profile they use most often). By comparison, only 7% of teen social media users say they maintain a Myspace account, and none of the survey respondents said MySpace is the account they used most often. That is in stark contrast to the 85% of teens who said in 2006 that MySpace was their most frequently used profile. Read the rest at Pew Internet and American Life Project.
