Facebook remains the most popular social network among American teens, according to a recent report from the Pew Research Center.

The report was based on data from a survey conducted between September 25 and October 9, 2014, among a nationally representative sample of 1,060 teens in the United States age 13-17.

Some 71% of teens surveyed say they use Facebook; Instagram is the second most popular social network (52% use), followed by Snapchat (41%), Twitter (33%), and Google+ (33%).

Facebook is also the most frequently visited platform by American teens, with 41% of them saying it is the social network they engage with most often. Instagram is the second most frequented social network (20% say they visit it most often), followed by Snapchat (11%) and Twitter (6%).

Teens from less-well-off households (annual income less than $50,000) are more likely to say they use Facebook the most: 49% of these teens say they use it most often, compared with 37% of teens from wealthier families (annual income of $50,000 or more).

Teens from more affluent households are more likely to say they use Snapchat most often, with 14% of those from families earning more than $75,000 saying Snapchat is their top site, compared with 7% of those whose families earn less than $30,000 annually.

Teenage girls are more likely than teenage boys to use visually oriented social networks, such as Instagram and Snapchat.
