Harvard’s Institute of Politics polled over 3,000 18 to 29-year-olds, covering a wide range of topics from political affiliation to social media use. During the poll, participants were asked which social media platforms they currently had accounts for.
Surprisingly, the poll revealed that a stark majority of the participants were members of Facebook, but less than half of had accounts with other social media sites such as Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram.
The following chart, created by online statistic portal Statista, illustrates the percentage of reach for each social media site among young adults, as conducted in the poll.
Time will tell whether the stats will hold as today’s teenagers – many of whom eschew Facebook— grow up.
