Snapchat snatching younger users from Facebook

A study byeMarketer research has revealed that young people prefer Snapchat to Facebook.

The study conducted in America revealed that less than half of Americans aged between 12 and 17 use the once popular app Facebook at least once a month.

It's a very unhappy time for Facebook which is kind of struggling on a whole range of controversies on a whole range of fronts.

eMarketer says it expects Facebook to lose 2 million users under the age of 25 this year. It predicts that Snapchat will pick up 1.9 million users within that age bracket.
