A study shows that teens are giving Instagram more screen time than its rival, Snapchat.

According to a Piper Jaffray survey, Instagram has replaced Snapchat as the most used app among teens.

In a survey of 8,600 teens with an average age of 15, 85 percent of teens report using the photo-sharing app at least once a month.

The survey also reports Facebook is still declining as only five percent of teens reporting it as their favorite social media platform.
