LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - It was 2006 when Facebook opened its doors to everyone. Once a site just for college students, then allowed almost anyone with an email address to join in. But in recent days, the social networking platform announced they're seeing a decrease in daily users- especially in teenagers.
But why? Well, according to The Guardian, it seems as though teenagers are looking to messenger apps, gravitating away from Facebook.
The Guardian reports that part of the reason is because many older adults are joining, so teens are looking for a more private option.
Teens are apparently looking to apps like Instagram, WhatsApp, and WeChat for their social networking desires.
