    Is there another service called Facebook?

    High school age students: 80% use Snapchat, 80% Instagram, 45% Facebook, <30% use Twitter

    Twitter and Facebook are pretty significant declines from a year ago, Instagram was the big gainer.

    Facebook rants are bad but 128 character rants are even worse and Twitterstorms tend to only be thought out in the last couple of tweets, from my experience. Don't get me wrong, the bar is still extremely low.

    Reviewing Football Manager is like reviewing Buddhism. Yes, you can do it, but you have to take your time.

    Snapchat is definitely the most reliable way to get my two eighteen-year-olds to reply promptly.

    Same for my nieces and nephews. I've just admitted defeat and don't even have it installed.

    My oldest son ignores my texts and phone calls for the most part, and communicates only via Snapchat. Neither one of my sons uses his Facebook account.

    Yeah, it's basically replaced text and phone calls but it hasn't really replaced social networks. If you're a company trying to reach younger kids, you use Instagram because that's where they follow and read (look at) their favorite companies.
