Turns out teenagers don't really like Pinterest. Who knew? According to a few recent studies by the Pew Research Center, way more teens use Facebook than adults do. Teens are also big fans of Twitter, while adults are bigger fans of Pinterest, Instagram and Tumblr.

This recent study also shows that teens are more likely to ask for advice when it comes to their online privacy.
