Can you even imagine life without social media? Nup? Us either!
Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat have literally changed the way we go about our day-to-day lives and helps us stay connected with our pals.
But what if you could only use ONE of these apps and had to ditch the other two. Which one would you choose?
It turns out most of y'all would choose the pic-based app Snapchat!
A recent survey by RBC Capital Markets revealed that peeps aged 13 to 18 prefer Snapchat over Insta and Facey.
44% in that age range cited their preference for Snapchat when asked the survey question this quarter, up 16% from when the same age group was asked in December 2016.
Instagram wasn’t far behind, though 79% between ages 13 and 18 reported having Snapchat accounts, 73% said the same for Instagram, and only 57% mentioned using Facebook.
Meanwhile, people age 19 and over overwhelmingly opted for Facebook which is still the most used social media app with 91% of social media users claiming that they have an account, compared to Instagram’s 47%, Twitter’s 42%, and Snapchat’s 31%.
Overall, social media usage is at an all time high with 82% per cent of those surveyed this year saying that they use some social platform whereas last year was just 73%.
Looks like Snapchat streaks and all the updated stickers have worked like a charm!
