Inspired by Branch co-founder Josh Miller's recent post about how his 15-year-old sister uses the Internet, Y Combinator partner Garry Tansurveyed a bunch of teenagers and young adults to find out which services they use regularly.
With help from YC-backed Survata, Tan surveyed a total of 1,038 people from two different groups: people aged 13-18, and 19-25.
He asked them to report how often they use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Snapchat.
Surprisingly enough, Tumblr is actually the most used site among all respondents. Tumblr is a blogging platform that lets users post things like text, images, videos, links, and audio.
But as Miller wrote, teenagers seem to be using Tumblr mostly to look at photos from celebrities.
In addition to teenagers, investors have also shown quite a bit of interest in the microblogging site. Tumblr has raised $126 million to date and is currently valued at $800 million.
