Youngsters leaving Facebook for Twitter


kate-upton-twitter

You know how you got sick of Facebook when you mom and your grandmom joined it? Well, a lot of people feel that way. At least a lot of young people.

According to a recent survey, teenagers have been complaining that too many adults are on Facebook, and too many people are using it as a social media app therapist. A new study published Tuesday about online behavior said Twitter was providing less drama than Facebook. It conveyed that teens are sharing more personal information about themselves even as they try to protect their online reputations.

As you can see from the Twitter pictures in this article of Kate Upton, Twitter reaches teenagers. She was 19 or something in these Twitter pics.

Teens told researchers there were too many adults on Facebook watching them, too much sharing of teenage angst (what is this a Nirvana show?) and mundane minutia like what someone ate, or what administrative tasks they’re currently doing. Obviously, Twitter has that too; in spades. However, it’s “obvs” that “ppl” are “totes” less likely to be as annoying, peeperish and mundane on Twitter.

Plus Twitter also has much more news value.

From the AP:

In the poll, 94 percent of teens who are social media users have a profile on Facebook — flat from the previous year. Twenty-six percent of teen social media users were on Twitter. That’s more than double the figure in 2011 of 12 percent.

“Facebook just really seems to have more drama,” said 16-year-old Jaime Esquivel, a junior at C.D. Hylton High School in Woodbridge, Va., in an interview.

Esquivel said he still checks his Facebook account daily but isn’t using it as regularly as in the past. He sees teens complaining on Twitter, too, so Esquivel has been using the photo-sharing service Instagram more often, posting a couple of pictures each day and communicating with friends. Facebook purchased Instagram last year.

Banks has appeared on the History Channel, as well as Clear Channel, ESPN and CBS radio all over the world. President Barack Obama follows him on Twitter (@PaulMBanks), like him on Facebook
