Kimberly Castleberry's curator insight, October 26, 2013 6:16 PM

We repeatedly are seeing more and more teens indicate that they have "forgotten about" Facebook (though many are still raving fans). However, the debate still seems up in the air about which network teens are favoring today. It seems to me as though teens have not yet settled on their new "network of choice" and this may in part due to the quicker acquisition model and thus invasion by adults that we see today. Definitely something to keep an eye on as teens wander about and look for their new hub.
