A new Pew Research Center survey published on April 10th — conducted between January 8 to February 7, 2019—reveals social media usage among American adults remains statistically unchanged.

Moreover,  Pew noted that social media growth is slowing down—compared to ten years ago. Here’s their chart breaking down the most widely used social media platforms among U.S. adults:

The most popular platform is YouTube (73%). Facebook (69%) holds the second coveted spot, while Instagram (37%) comes in at the third spot. Twitter (22%) is the 7th most widely used social media platform and reportedly boasts 126 million daily users, as of February 2019.

Moreover, the survey found that Millennials aged 18-to-29 are big time consumers of Instagram (67%) and Snapchat (62%), respectively. Very interesting.

These findings are interesting to digest, as platforms like Facebook and Twitter have been plagued by endless scandals related to privacy and censorship, for example.

Has your social media usage changed in the last ten years? Have you adopted more platforms or abandoned social networking altogether?
