New poll explores how Americans use social media
Briefly

According to a new report from Pew Research Center, YouTube and Facebook are still the social media apps with the highest usage among US adults, with 83% and 68% of the adult population using them, respectively. The report also found that only about half of adult Americans use Instagram, while BeReal, a new social media app, is used by only 3% of the population. The biggest change since Pew's last survey in 2021 is the increase in TikTok users, which went up by 12 percentage points from 21% to 33%.
"YouTube and Facebook remain the most used social media apps among all U.S. adults, with 83% and 68% of the adult population using them, respectively."
The report also highlights that age gaps in social media usage still persist. Americans under the age of 30 use social media much more compared to older Americans. For platforms like Instagram, Snapchat, and TikTok, there is a significant age gap in usage. For example, 78% of adults ages 18 to 29 use Instagram, while only 15% of adults 65 or older use the site.
As new social media platforms appear, old age-related patterns persist. Pew's new survey found that many more Americans under age 30 use social media compared to older Americans.
