These Are The Most Popular Social Media Sites Amongst Teens

These days it’s hard to find a teen that isn’t on social media at least a little bit, if not all the time. And while they certainly aren’t the only ones addicted to social media, which sites they go on is another story.

A new Pew Research center poll of teens 13 to 17 finds:

  • YouTube is the most popular social media site for teens, with 95% saying they use the site.
  • Quickly rising in the rankings though is TikTok, which 67% of teens say they use.
  • Facebook, which 71% of teens used between 2014 to 2015, has dropped dramatically, with only 32% of teens saying they ever use it.
