An insight: How Americans’ social media habits are changing?



US adults will spend 25.7% of their social media time on Facebook, down 9.6% from 2019.

Evidence of TikTok’s growth in the American social media space is observable. TikTok has captured the attention of 12.2% more US adults since 2019. Daily time spent on social networks increased from 59 minutes in 2019 to 1 hour, 15 minutes in 2020 and it will stay at this level over the next few years as users customise their social media usage.
