Why Read This Brief

Marketers seem to think teens are fleeing Facebook. The reality is that this couldn't be further from the truth. Sure, young people don't think Facebook is very cool — but that doesn't mean they've stopped using it. This brief presents Forrester's data on teens' adoption — including the fact that Facebook generates greater intensity of usage from young people than any other social site — and guides marketers to the right teen Facebook marketing strategies.
