24% of teens say social media's effects are mostly negative

But that number is dwarfed by the 85% who report using YouTube, 72% who use Instagram, and 69% who are on Snapchat.

However, it's important to note that Pew's survey in 2015 did not include YouTube and Reddit as options, but was included in the 2018 survey.

33% of male teens used Youtube more than females (16%), while females used Snapchat and Instagram more heavily than their male counterparts.

Facebook investors don't appear overly concerned with the findings, as the stock was trading higher by more than 1 percent just before the close Friday at $193.97. Meanwhile, Twitter followed at 32 per cent, and Tumblr's popularity (14 per cent) remained the same since the 2015 survey.

Pew researchers say theres no clear consensus among teens on whether these services are good or bad for them. Around 70 percent of teens from those households use Facebook.

Ninety-five percent of teens have access to a smartphone, and 45 percent of teens are nearly constantly online - but younger Internet users do not connect on Facebook as much as their older peers do, suggests a Pew Research Center study released Thursday.

Pew Research's survey revealed that 95 percent of teenagers in the United States own or have access to a smartphone, and 88 percent own or have access to a desktop or laptop computer.

"The social media environment among teens is quite different from what it was just three years ago", Monica Anderson, a lead author of the report, said in a statement. This also means that the Social Media is no more centered around a single platform like Facebook.

The most striking disparity between the two surveys is in teens' use of Facebook. About one-third of the survey's respondents said they visit Snapchat and YouTube most often, while 15% said Instagram is their more frequent destination. Minorities of teenagers describe that effect as mostly positive (31 per cent) or mostly negative (24 per cent), but the largest share (45 per cent) says that effect has been neither positive nor negative, the survey showed. "It blocks recent search history." said one 15yr old during the survey.

As Facebook's popularity dropped by around 20 percentage points in the last three years, both Snapchat and Instagram grew at a similar rate.
