According to a new study from Pew Research Center, 92% of teens report going online daily — including 24% who say they go online “almost constantly” - aided by the convenience and constant access provided by mobile devices, especially smartphones.

Much of this frenzy of access is facilitated by mobile devices. Nearly three-quarters of teens have or have access to a smartphone. Facebook is the most popular and frequently used social media platform among teens; half of teens use Instagram, and nearly as many use Snapchat.
