Flat growth wasn’t unique to just Facebook, either. According to Pew, the only other platform to see “statistically significant” growth since 2019 was Reddit, which grew from 11 percent in 2019 to 18 percent in 2021. “This represents a broader trend that extends beyond the past two years in which the rapid adoption of most of these sites and apps seen in the last decade has slowed,” Pew says. The report also found that 49 percent of Facebook users say they check the site multiple times a day, compared to just over a third of YouTube users visiting the platform more frequently than once a day.
