Teens and Adults do things differently when it comes to their social life. Hardly “breaking news”.  But how far does this generation gap extend online ? Facebook was all the rage back in its day, but are Teens still keen to use the platform knowing that their “Parentals” and other “Randomz” are stalking and following their every move?

According to NexAdvisor research there is a large generation gap between how Adults and Teens use Social Media.

Teens still use Facebook and Twitter more than Adults do (94% teens compared to 67% adults)

Teens are are less likely to use Pinterest compared to Adults (Adults 15% and Teens 1%)
