Tumblr Has Emerged As The Most Teen-Centric Social Network

Published by Business Insider on Wed, 03 Dec 2014

Tumblr remains the most teen-centric social network.It's also much more popular among millennials than it is among Gen Xers.Young users mean income levels are low among Tumblr users, but Tumblr is great as a canvas for brand messages: it's image-centric, its content is very shareable, and it has a very defined quirky user culture that has grown up around it.In a new report from BI Intelligence, we unpack data from over a dozen sources to understand how social media demographics are still shifting.Access The Full Report And Its 20 Charts By Signing Up For A Free Trial >>Here are a few of the key takeaways from the BI Intelligence report:Almost one-third of consumers aged 18 to 34 use Tumblr:30% of U.S. web users 18 to 34 use Tumblr, 11 percentage points higher than the percentage of 35- to 54-year-olds who use the service, according to data from comScore.Only Instagram and Snapchat show a wider gap in penetration between the two age groups.Globally, Tumblr's audience is skewed toward teens and those in their early twenties: Tumblr's audience skews heavily to the 16-to-24 age group when looking at the global user base. This age group makes up nearly 50% of Tumblr's users.But Tumblr has some older users too: Interestingly, although Instagram is well ahead of Tumblr in the number of millennial and Gen X users, among those 55 and older, the two social networks are tied at 12% penetration.Tumblr's Achilles Heel remains its relatively lackluster performance on mobile: It has remained persistently desktop-heavy, posing a long-term threat to growth as Tumblr's competitors become mobile-focused companies.In fact,desktop still accounted for 54% of the time spent on the sitein December 2013. The only social network that is more desktop-heavy is LinkedIn, which has a much older user base.And low incomes: In keeping with the younger age of Tumblr users,Competefound that more than one-third of Tumblr's users made less than $30,00 a year in December 2012.
