Sad news Facebook fans, Instagram is stealing its social media crown as users are increasingly ditching the site.

According to a new study of teens in America (the benchmark for all society), Instagram has now overtaken Facebook as their oversharing method of choice.

The survey Taking Stock With Teens found that 30% of teens chose Instagram as their most important social network, knocking Facebook off the top spot.

This study adds to a growing database of reports saying that Facebook is on the way out. Earlier in the year, Princeton University predicted a predicted 80% drop in users by 2017, blaming its inability to lure young teenagers as the reason why..

They believe we will become 'immune' to the site as more exciting social media websites rise up over the next three years.

Now that no one under the age of 18 cares, it's struggling to keep up, meanwhile those of us over 18 are drowning in baby photos and scans.

Does Facebook make you feel old?
Yes, I'm basically a pensioner. 15.28%
No, it still rules my social life. 31.94%
Maybe, it's starting to feel a bit circa 2007. 52.78%
