Teens Use of Social Media 2018

Based on this infographic from Common Sense Media, teens’ use of social media and smartphones is increasing (survey of 13-17 year olds in the USA). Their main social network is Snapchat, and the percentage of teens with a smartphone has doubled in the last 6 years.

29% of teen smartphone owners say they’ve been woken up by their phones during the night by a call, text, or notification.

Teens are also communicating less via text than they are in person, which is not a good thing. Although we can reasonably imagine that adults are setting an example with the amount of time that we’re spending on our smartphones as well.
