Facebook is losing popularity among teens according to a new report from iStrategyLabs. Results of the study were revealed by the digital agency Wednesday (Jan. 15) along with a comparison to data obtained in January 2011.

An analysis of social media practices across the nation found that teenagers are migrating away from the Facebook. Compared to three years ago, the use of Facebook among men and women between the ages of 13 to 17 is significantly lower as of January 2014.

According to iStrategyLabs’ demographics report, the number of teenagers accessing Facebook declined from 13.1 million to 9.8 million over the past three years. Facebook hasn't confirmed or denied these figures that appear to underline a trend among teens. Data also indicates an 8 percent drop in Facebook use among young adults between the ages of 18 to 24.

As The Atlantic reports, President Barack Obama understands that many are shying away from the social media giant. “It seems like they don’t use Facebook anymore,” Obama said during a recent visit to a Washington, D.C. cafe.
