According to the Futures Company’s annual upcoming TRU Youth Monitor survey results, as previewed by Mashable, 50 percent of teens aged 12 to 15 chose YouTube as their favorite site as opposed to 45.2 percent who chose Facebook.

Top runner ups on the favorite site survey were Amazon (37.5 percent), Google (25 percent), Twitter (19.5 percent) and Tumblr (12.3 percent).

In addition to its loss of favor over YouTube, much of the younger teen market that’s fled Facebook have moved on to Snapchat, which reported a 1650 percent increase in photo shares over 2013, and Instagram, which is the fastest growing social network according to a recent Simply Measured report.
