I was talking to my daughter (17) about this. As others have said, Facebook is out, and Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr are in. The one comment about Facebook that stood out: "It's been taken over by moms."

Do they tend to keep private profiles, use pseudonymns or just broadcast it completely publicly with twitter? I don't recall twitter having 'friend' only posts.

Anecdotally, no. IMO, Twitter is half social engagement, half narcissism. You can make your account private, but that would void the narcissistic half.

You can set your Twitter feed to be private - meaning only those who you follow will have access to your updates.
