Younger teens ‘hate it’ when parents try to make friends

eMarketer estimates that 74.9% of teen Internet users were regular social network users in 2009, rising to 78.2% in 2010. By 2014, 85.7% of teen Internet users will use social networks.

With the youth audience at such high levels of social network penetration, adults have fueled the bulk of growth on sites like Facebook in 2009 and 2010. Even at such heavy usage rates, teens will account for just 14.6% of all social network users in 2010 and 12.7% in 2014, according to eMarketer’s projections.
