Teens moving on from Facebook

Experts say teenagers are dumping Facebook and turning to messaging applications on their smartphones like Whatsapp, Messageme, LINE, KakaoTalk, Kik and Wechat. The apps allow teens to share pictures, messages and even make calls without leaving any trace of who they’ve been speaking to on a parents' phone bill. Parents who have become savvy about Facebook tend to know less about the new messaging apps, which don't enforce Facebook’s 13-year-old age minimum.
