sites among younger Americans compared to other social media
sites. It was clearly shows the rising percentage starting from

teenagers who are likely to sharing their photos with a caption
through their cellphone only.

Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter where user can post a photo
with Face Filter features and a caption.

it’s possessed 74% of net daily usage. This is because Facebook
(Chart 2) works as an RSS reader for news by giving a latest news to user
who are need to keep updated.

daily usage compared to Instagram 60% of net daily usage. This
is because Snapchat offers variety of interesting filter features
that you can choose from to express yourselves and how you
truly feel.

45% only. It happens because Youtube requires it user to have a
good internet connection in order to access it. If not, the video

younger Americans while Facebook are popular among adult
Americans. In addition, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter are suitable
for teenagers and specifically in media-based types. While
Facebook is more suitable for adult who are need for information,
news and business purposes.

Recommendation My recommendation to social media user these day is to be aware


of your audience and be respectful also sensitive about the content
you create or share. You should avoid creating unnecessary content
or engaging in an online conversation in a manner that would
compromise your personal information.
