The Jew-run social media site Facebook is not all that popular with Generation Z. In fact, it is becoming less and less popular with the younger generation.
Facebook is rapidly losing ground against rival internet platforms in attracting and keeping US teenagers, a survey showed Thursday.
The Pew Research Center report confirms a trend seen in other surveys, showing a sharp drop in Facebook’s share of what had long been a core age segment for the huge social network.
The survey found 51 percent of US teens ages 13 to 17 use Facebook, compared with 85 percent for YouTube, 72 percent for Instagram and 69 percent who are on Snapchat.
The landscape has shifted since a 2014-15 Pew survey which found Facebook leading other social networks with 71 percent of the teen segment.
According to the survey, 95 percent of the teens survey said they used a smartphone and 45 percent were online “almost constantly,” with both figures showing increases from prior surveys.
“The social media environment among teens is quite different from what it was just three years ago,” said Pew researcher Monica Anderson, the lead author of the report.
“Back then, teens’ social media use mostly revolved around Facebook. Today, their habits revolve less around a single platform. At the same time we’ve seen this shift, teens are more digitally connected than ever.”
This phenomenon is not all that surprising. Facebook is much more popular with older demographics. In fact, it is disturbingly popular with baby boomers. So why would teenagers want to be on a platform that their grandparents and great grandparents are using?
Plus, when you combine all the speech censorship and nonsense on the platform itself, it has become one of the most uncool social media sites around.
We can expect this trend to continue. In fact, it would not be surprising if Facebook went the way of MySpace in the next 10 to 15 years. This might sound crazy in the current year considering how much of a behemoth the site is, but things change rapidly in the world of technology.
In the mid-2000s, nobody thought anybody could take down MySpace and now MySpace isn’t even considered a remotely important platform. The same thing could definitely happen to Facebook. They’re certainly not doing themselves any favors with all the kikery that they’ve engaged in that’s for sure.
