The kids are alright and leaving established social media

So says this Buzzfeed article, Teens Abandoning Social Networks, Study Says. Where are they going?

What do these sites have in common? According to the article

The sites that are either ascendant, holding steady, or holding relatively strong are feed-heavy and profile-light; the sites that seem to be hit hardest are those that have a more traditional, MySpace-y structure, centered around a detailed profile. (Tumblr is the odd exception here.)

After all that fretting about teens giving up their privacy, they seem to have decided to go to sites that provide more of that. Smart. (Or lazy, but I am going with smart. 🙂 )
