While Facebook may still be the top social network, a new study suggests it is dying among teenagers.

According to Forbes, the study is called the Global Social Media Impact Study. UK Professor Daniel Miller of University College London is leading the eight country, multi-city analysis.

So far, the study found that Facebook is “dead and buried” among 16 to 19-year-olds in the UK, who mostly feel embarrassed to be associated with the social network site. The study found that while parents were once worried about their teens joining Facebook, teens now say their family members are playing the role of ‘big brother’ online.

According to Forbes, teenagers are instead gravitating towards Snapchat and Twitter, where interactions leave no permanent record.
