header_stats2A  new study from Pew Research Center reveals that 92 percent of teens go online daily –24 percent of teens almost constantly–mostly thanks to smartphones.

The latest data also shows that Facebook is the most popular and frequently used social media platform among teens (71 percent). Half of teens use Instagram and nearly as many use Snapchat. Most use more than one social network regularly.

Teens from more affluent households say they visit Snapchat most often, with 14 percent of those from families earning more than $75,000 saying Snapchat is their top site, compared with 7 percent of those whose families earn less than $30,000 annually. Twitter shows a similar pattern by income; the wealthiest teens use Twitter more.
