The distance between American teenagers and Facebook is increasing, and the other social media platforms are getting popular among them.
According to ‘The Pew Research Center’, only 51 percent of American teenagers aged 13 to 17 use Facebook, which is 20 percent less than in 2015.
The most popular among US teenagers is YouTube, which is used by 85 percent of teens.
According to the Pew Survey, 72 percent of the Instagram is Snapchat with the second and 69 percent of the number.

The most commonly used Twitter now uses only 32 percent of teens.
Only ten percent of the participants in this survey said that they use Facebook more than any other social networking platform.
Mark Zuckerberg also owns Instagram with Facebook, so his California-based company is still doing a good business.
But it is clear that YouTube and Twitter’s proprietary company Google is now making a grip among teenagers.
According to the survey three years ago 73 percent of American youth had smartphones, but now this figure has increased to 95 percent.
Studies also show that younger people of low-income families are more likely to spend time on Facebook compared to the higher income families.
Effects on life
There was no clear result of the social network between adolescents on their life, in the Pew survey.
31 percent of people believe that such a site has a positive effect, while 24 percent say it is negative. Although the highest figure is that of 45 percent of the people, who believe that they do not have a positive effect or negative.
A 15-year-old girl said, “I do not feel lonely through the social networking site, it’s a place where you can meet people of your age and talk.”
Another user of the same age said, “It is more difficult to become social in real life, because of this you do not meet people personally.”
