Most teens have an account and profile on at least one platform of social media. Over the years, there have been new apps that have been discovered and used by more people. Which one is the most popular? Who determines that? It makes most sense to see what people in the school think.

According to Marcus Long, “I’d think the most popular social media platform is Instagram or Twitter. I’m mostly on instagram because of the group chats that can happen in it. My friends and I love sending memes to each other and laughing at what was sent.”

Instagram was founded in October of 2010 and currently, there is more than 4.2 Instagram likes per day.

Gavin Giles says, “I think that Snapchat is the most-used social media platform and rather than just texting people, you can see people’s expressions too. I think that is a better way of communicating anyways.”

Before 2012, snapchat was only accessible to Iphone users and was originally called Picaboo. After the app branched out to Android users as well, the app was called Snapchat instead, which has over 100 million users per day.

Senior Kacie Allen says, “I also think that Snapchat is the most popular app used by people our age because you can post pictures to your story and not have to worry about likes because our generation strives off those likes, don’t lie.”

Facebook was the app that all kids couldn’t wait to make an account on when they were younger because everyone they looked up to had one. As kids grow up, they realize that how bad they wanted to make a Facebook account was ridiculous because now they barely use it. On average, older people use Facebook more, and if kids use it, it is to keep in touch with their older family members and friends.

Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat are definitely the three main apps that teens use daily.

    I do agree with Kacie, our generation is only worried about how many like they get, when on Snapchat you don’t have to worry about that.

    This article was well-written and I like the topic that you chose. I think the most popular social media app is Snap-chat.
