Teenage Social Media Behavior [INFOGRAPHIC]

Pew released a study this week about teenagers on social media. It was pretty fascinating stuff, particularly the disillusionment with Facebook despite huge participation. I wrote about it earlier in the week here, but wanted to share the infographic that they created, which creates an interesting visual around teenage social circles.

Let me know your thoughts on this one (or more precisely these two). :)

    Very interesting but not surprising.  We study the 18-24 year old demo at the Missouri School of Journalism and we have seen this trend away from Facebook.  It was inevitable as teh 50+ population grew.  We see this group using Instagram, Kik and other group sharing programs which don't require "friending." This generation also sees nothing strange with online only friends. Given the number of adults who find marriage partners via online dating sites, should we really be surprised?

    Very Important Info.

    First , My Son is a Teen ( 16 ) and not only is about this 33% that they have on FB ,people that never met in person,it's more things..

    They have many accounts, and sometimes they have "their own" real Facebook for use only with Friends.

    Many of them , don't like share info ,or they haven't to their parents as FB Friends....( Is My Case)

    Very Bad...the Social Media, sometimes is cool for them , but they use it on other way.

    By the way, they start to use more now Instagram, because, they like more pics about themselves and friends, and with the #  they have oportunity for meet with new and strange people..

    Great Post!.
