oh body age, yeah.
Facebook has traction in younger people in Philippines and India. Facebook is BOOMING in Africa right now among all ages.
But in the USA, younger people tend towards Snapchat, Instagram, Tiktok, Discord. They have some kind of Twitter at some point too simply because “it’s there” and common, although many subcultures that are less age-based can thrive on there. Digital artists, furries, creatives, etc.
I think Telegram is rising really quickly; Russians flocked to it when their Instagrams and Facebooks got shut (and if they didn’t want to bother with VPNs, although most of the ones I know seem to be back on Instagram through VPN again now), it’s also been a good source for information about the war that’s less censored than other networks.
Telegram has done a fine job cleaning up their illicit images issue which is a bonus.
Likee is popular in Eastern Europe – it’s exactly like Tiktok but isn’t being used as an all-purpose video side like Tiktok has become.
The memes coming into Tiktok didn’t surprise me so much but when it was used as a way for Q Republicans in my generation (X) – moms in particular – to gather together en masse for spreading their kind of information with each other – that surprised me.
