Summary (IA Generated)

Facebook’s growth has leveled off over the last five years, according to new survey results from Pew Research Center.

YouTube was the tech platform that enjoyed the most “significant growth” during the pandemic, according to a new survey from Pew Research Center on Wednesday, as the Google-owned video giant — like several streaming services over the last year — benefited from people remaining at home.

The key takeaway: 81% of Americans said they use YouTube on a regular basis, which is up from 73% in 2019, the last time Pew released similar findings.

(Pew looked at several other major apps and websites in the survey, including Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.

In particular, YouTube seems to be a go-to spot for younger people, with 95% of respondents ages 18 to 29 saying they use the platform, as well as 91% of those 30 to 49; for comparison, 70% of respondents 18 to 29 said they use Facebook, which grows to 77% for those between the ages of 30 and 49.

Still, it’s worth pointing out Facebook remains very popular among Americans overall, with 69% of respondents saying they use the service — second only to YouTube.

“Facebook’s growth has leveled off over the last five years,” Pew said, “but it remains one of the most widely used social media sites among adults in the United States: 69% of adults today say they ever use the site, equaling the share who said this two years prior.

The share of people using Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Snapchat, Twitter and WhatsApp is “statistically unchanged” since 2019, according to Pew.

72% of Americans said they use some form of social media, but there are some “stark age differences,” Pew noted: 84% of respondents 18 to 29 said they use social media, compared to only 45% of respondents 65 and older saying they use social media.

Among those who use Facebook, 49% of respondents said they check it multiple times per day — the highest rate among any other service; Snapchat, with 45% of respondents saying they check their accounts multiple times a day, was second on that measure.
