Tumblr, Instagram, YouTube Attract Younger Audience
Among the top 10 global social platforms, Tumblr has the greatest share of younger users, with 47% of active users in the 16-24 year-old demographic.
Instagram and YouTube also have a fairly young user base; the greatest share of users for both social networks come from the 16-24 age group, according to recent data from GlobalWebIndex.
On the other end of the spectrum, LinkedIn has the oldest user base, followed by Facebook. Only 26% of Facebook’s users are in the 16-24 demographic; the majority of the social network’s users fall in the 25-34 age group.
Can Facebook regain popularity among a younger demographic – or will it simply keep acquiring companies that already appeal to that age group (ex Instagram, WhatsApp)?
