REPORT: What Facebook Teen Problem?

TeensGlassesTablet650Reports of the demise of Facebook’s teen user base have been greatly exaggerated, at least according to Forrester Research, which reported that the social network performed quite favorably in its recent survey of 4,517 U.S. online users between the ages of 12 and 17.

According to the results of Forrester’s survey, more than three-quarters of respondents use Facebook — double the totals registered by Pinterest, Tumblr, or Snapchat, and more than Facebook-owned Instagram and WhatsApp combined.

Further, Forrester found that 28 percent of respondents said they use Facebook “all the time,” more than any other social network.
