Facebook is one of the most widely used social media platforms. With 2.2 billion monthly active users, Facebook stands right on top of the list of social media sites.

However, Facebook is slowly losing wind in the sails as youth are deviating towards Instagram and Snapchat. A survey held solely in the USA revealed that Facebook lost 5.8% of users between 18-24 age group.

Teenagers are tending towards Snapchat and Instagram as they offer new age interface and dish out interesting updates frequently.

Snapchat’s unique feature of deleting messages after 24 hours is vastly attracting the younger generation.

The survey held in the USA revealed that Facebook has 16.9 crore users while Instagram and Snapchat have 10.47 and 8.65 crore users respectively.
