According to research by Frank N. Magid Associates, Facebook usage from teens age 13 to 17 has fallen to 88% in 2014. This is a 7% drop when compared to 2012’s 95%. However, the social media platform continues to be popular with older users and is still them most popular among similar services, reports Bloomberg.

A similar study published earlier this month by GlobalWebIndex also claimed that teens weren’t signing onto Facebook as much. 54% of teens involved in the study said they didn’t log into the service as much due to a “lack of interest”, Business Insider notes.

Other social media platforms, such as Twitter (TWTR) and Snapchat, have seen an increase in teen users. Twitter usage by teens is up to 48%, a 2% increase, and 86% of Snapchat’s users are teens, reports Bloomberg.
