For some time, I’ve been hearing that younger people are moving away from Facebook and congregating on Twitter for two reasons:
1) Mom probably isn’t on Twitter.
2) It’s a great place to follow favorite celebrities.
Although there isn’t a lot of data to answer the “why,” new research from the Pew Internet & American Life Project confirms that Twitter is indeed experiencing a youth movement. But there is something more interesting here too …
While the margin of error could contribute to that aberration, this implies that there is a probability that 17 percent of all teens using Twitter stopped using the service within a six-month period in 2012. That’s kind of mind-boggling, especially since there is no commensurate drop in the usage across other demographics to point to some issue that would affect everyone.
Any idea what could have happened last year?
