Though teens think that YouTube, Snapchat, and Instagram are eminently more hip than Facebook, they’re lying when they say they no longer use it. In fact, according to a report issued by Forrester Research today, they’re on it more than any other social network.
Forrester’s online survey of 4,485 U.S. residents aged 12 to 17 had more than three quarters admitting to visiting Mark Zuckerberg’s baby. (Well, pre-teen. It’ll be 12 years old in February). Moreover, 60% said Facebook was the social site they used most and one third said they were on it “all the time.”
Those professing the site was just for old folks were in the minority, as well. Though six sites finished ahead of Facebook in teens’ ratings of hip social media—among them Vine and WhatsApp—nearly two thirds found Facebook “cool.”
