Millions of young people are flocking away from social media

For a few years now, alarms have been sounded about Facebook’s teen problem.

In 2013, one author explored why teens are tiring of Facebook, and according to Time, more than 11 million young people have fled Facebook since 2011.

Many of these articles theorized that teens were moving instead to Instagram (a Facebook-owned property) and other social media platforms.

In other words, teen flight was a Facebook problem, not a social media problem.
