How Many Teens Are Actually Leaving Facebook?

Word on the street is that teens are leaving Facebook in hoards and instead flocking to apps likeSnapchat and Instagram.

A report from digital agency iStrategyLabs breaks down just how many teens have abandoned the monster social network since 2011. According to its findings released Wednesday, which the agency claims were drawn from Facebook’s Social Advertising platform, 25% fewer U.S. teens use Facebook now than in 2011. That results to a net loss of more than 3 million users. However, Facebook could not confirm these numbers, so take the data with a grain of salt.
