Washington: The interest of teenagers is moving away from social networking platform Facebook, and they prefer ‘parent-free’ platforms, according to a survey.

The survey, conducted by Pew Research Center, indicates how teenagers' enthusiasm for Facebook is diminishing. The authors of the Pew report wrote how Facebook is now a ‘social burden’ for teenaged users.

"While Facebook is still deeply integrated in teens' everyday lives, it is sometimes seen as a utility and an obligation rather than an exciting new platform that teens can claim as their own," a website quoted one of the authors.

Teens are flocking to Twitter and Instagram, which they say offer a ‘parent-free place’ where they can better express themselves.
