Teens' icons and role models aren't just actors and athletes anymore - now, they're looking up to their favorite people to follow on Instagram and YouTube.
Financial analysts at Piper Jaffray recently surveyed 9,500 teenagers as part of its biannual project to gain insight into Generation Z's favorite brands, day-to-day habits, and preferences when it comes to shopping, spending money, and spending time.
The results, released Tuesday, show a lot about teens' social media behavior: they're spending more time watching videos on YouTube rather than on Netflix, and Instagram is their most-frequented app - although Snapchat remains the favorite.
