It ain't easy being Facebook -- Usage with Teens Down.

I wonder if teenagers are as bored with Facebook as we are.
Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel said on stage at TechCrunch Disrupt SF in September that it sees 350 million “snaps” (photos and videos) sent per day. That’s equal to the number of photos uploaded to Facebook per day. Of course, some teens may be shifting their attention to Instagram, which Facebook owns.
Facebook had denied losing luster with teens last quarter. Mark Zuckerberg said in July that “One specific demographic I want to address is U.S. teens. There’s been a lot of speculation and reporting that fewer teens are using Facebook, but based on our data that just isn’t true.”
Teens may not be quitting Facebook but they're definitely using it less in favor of apps like Snapchat.
