UK Teens Losing Interest in Twitter, Says Study


Facebook remains the number one social network amongst teenage social media users in the United Kingdom, but Twitter has fallen in popularity year-on-year, reveals a new study.

Ofcom polled UK social media users aged 12-15 years of age and found that 96 percent used Facebook, down just 1 percent from 2013.

Twitter, meanwhile, is used by 28 percent of UK teens, compared to 37 percent a year ago.

Over the same period Instagram’s share has more than doubled, from 16 percent to 36 percent, ranking it second overall amongst  all social networks.

Snapchat has risen from zero share in 2013 to 26 percent last year, placing it fourth behind Twitter.
