To loosely paraphrase Beyonce: All that cake by the pound on Instagram is really paying off, ladies.
The Pew Research Center recently released their 2015 "Social Media & Technology Overview," which analyzes the patterns of #youths on social media, and they had some interesting discoveries.
Spoiler alert: Girls are killing it on social media, particularly on visually-oriented platforms like Instagram, Snapchat and Tumblr.
When it comes to young women, there's just no shame in your social media game. But the study doesn't tell the whole story. Yes, there are selfies on selfies and drool-worthy Pinterest boards, but girls are also using platforms like Instagram to do really empowering things, like sharing photos of food to help each other maintain a healthy relationship with food. These communities of support are made possible through social media, and that's pretty inspiring.
And as evidenced by the chart above, though dudes are more likely to being play video games while teen girls are on their iPhone 5s, it seems the gap between male and female gamers may to be closing.
So keep those selfies coming! We love to see the creative environment you're all inventing.
