Asked whether they were friends with their parents on Facebook, several of the teens on stage at Business Insider’s Ignition 2013 conference groaned loudly.
Stephanie Retblatt of Smarty Pants interviewed nine New York City teenagers, ages ranging from 14 to 17, about their digital lives and habits.
“I hate Facebook. It’s just so boring,” one teenage girl said, before declaring her sworn allegiance to Instagram.
“I used to scroll down Facebook and read every single status,” another added. “Now I just love Vine.”
One young woman even confessed that her mother had more than double the amount of Facebook friends that she did.
