Right now we are in the era in which social networks dominate a good part of the life of many people, whose desire is to share absolutely everything that is in your life with strangers – and some acquaintances – on the internet.
However, the truth is that Not all social networks are for the same type of audience, and they are not even used the same. And now, a study has revealed that younger users feel little interest in Facebook compared to other social networks.
No, Facebook does not attract younger users as much as other social networks
As you read it, a study has revealed that Younger users are not as interested in Facebook as they are in other social networks -no messenger applications, eye- quite different from the most used worldwide.
And, the use that an adult person can give to Facebook differs greatly from how a younger user would do it, since, in general, young people show and want to see much more in their social networks, and prioritize images.
And for more proof, here is the complete list based on the response of the respondents. But, keep in mind that the result is not over one hundred, since as we can read inIt is a questionnaire with multiple answers.
- YouTube: 85%
- Instagram: 72%
- Snapchat: 69%
- Facebook: 51%
- Twitter: 32%
- Tumblr: 9%
- Reddit: 7%
- Other social networks: 3%
As you can see, YouTube is the first social network – Although we do not consider it as such -, since it is one of the platforms where the most content is consumed daily throughout the world.
The second and third place, on the other hand, are held by Instagram and WhatsApp respectively, and here the reasoning follows the line of what we said before: these are two very informal networks, whose only attraction are photos and videos, No links to news, texts or similar content.
In addition, the arrival of stories to Instagram has made the social network a great leap, taking advantage of the way to upload ephemeral content of Snapchat itself. And, after all, It has its charm that upload photos or videos that will self-destruct after a day.
After these, Facebook and Twitter occupy the fourth and fifth place of use among young people, who, in general, they are more comfortable in more informal networks and aimed at multimedia content that is totally visual, short and ephemeral.
And you, what kind of social network are you most comfortable with?
