Snapchat Is The Hottest Social Network Among U.S. Teens

When it comes to their social media preferences, U.S. teens are about as loyal as Brutus was to Caesar.

Facebook? Is for parents! Twitter? Not nearly enough selfies! Instagram? So 2015! According to Piper Jaffray's bi-annual survey of teenagers in the United States, Snapchat is where the cool kids get their social media fix these days.

28 percent of the 6,500 teenagers polled this year named Snapchat as their most important social network, propelling the chat app past Instagram and Twitter, which both saw their popularity among America's youngsters decline over the past 12 months. Snapchat may have conquered the hearts of teenagers, but it has yet to win over advertisers. According to a recent report, the app trails its peers by a mile in terms of utilization in advertising campaigns.

The chart shows which social networks U.S. teenagers prefer in Spring 2016.
