Facebook appears to be losing its youth appeal, with the company admitting for the first time a slight decline in teen usage on the social network.
From Q2 to Q3, "we did see a decrease in daily users, specifically among younger teens [in the U.S.],” Facebook CFO David Ebersman told analysts during an earnings call in which the company also announced a record $2 billion in quarterly revenue.
Ebersman pointed out that Facebook doesn’t normally offer such granular details.
