Vine is used by 10.7 percent of millennials while Pinterest has 17.9 percent users. At the bottom is Tumblr with 6.3 percent users. Snapchat’s popularity is also growing among 25 to 34-year-olds and in the over-35 age group – albeit more slowly than among the younger age group, the report said. Last year, its co-founder Evan Spiegel turned down a $3 billion acquisition bid from Facebook. Facebook then launched a rival app called Slingshot.

Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, followed this with the launch of Bolt.
