The poll, which explored social media use amongst teens and its relationship to race and class, showed that nearly 9 in 10 black teenagers use Snapchat, compared with just over 7 in 10 whites. And 4 in 10 black teens report using Snapchat almost constantly, compared with about 2 in 10 white teens. The poll also found that a third of Black teens say they use Instagram almost constantly, compared with about 1 in 5 white teens who responded similarly, the Associated Press reported. Much like with BlackTwitter, researchers noticed that Black teens are like to be first adopters of new social platforms.

Lower-income teens are less likely to have tablets or traditional desktop computers, which cost more and can make tasks like writing a paper, doing homework or filling out a job application easier. The study also examined teen habits among other social media apps. While texting is still the way 9 in 10 teens send short messages, according to the poll, 4 in 10 also use a messaging app, such as Kik, WhatsApp, Skype or Facebook Messenger.
Thirty-four percent of Black teens surveyed responded that they use three or more messaging apps, compared with 20 percent of white teens.
