As the social media landscape continues to evolve, so does the behavior and interests of one very important demographic: teens and Gen-Z’ers.

Before becoming a marketer, Big Spaceship’s SVP of Social Media, Victor Pineiro, was an elementary school teacher, which gave him a front-row seat to the behaviors and interests of young teens. Today, Victor works with brands like YouTube and has witnessed how teens’ relationships with top social platforms have shifted.

At #SMWNYC, Victor explored the state of social for today’s average teenager, and of course, Snapchat was a huge focus. The ephemeral photo and video sharing app has roughly 160 million daily active users (DAU), and 60% of Snapchat users are between 13 and 24 years old.
