Do not get too excited, although. Whereas everybody nonetheless kinda makes use of Instagram, Piper famous that after surveying 10,000 American teenagers, its competitor Snap (NYSE: SNAP) is definitely teenagers’ favourite social app to make use of. Requested to rank their favorites, 35% of respondents picked Snapchat over Instagram.
Worse information for Fb, Snapchat scored increased on this survey than within the one Piper ran six months in the past. As adverse headlines proceed to swirl round Fb and Instagram, we’ll be much more excited about seeing how these numbers look six months from now.
