A new survey from Gartner confirms what analysts and social media aficionados have suspected for some time — that young cats no longer find Facebook cool.

Gartner polled 1,400 kittens about their online habits, and 80% of respondents noted that they check Facebook less than once per week. 10% have deleted their accounts altogether.

“The younger generations are moving to newer networks like Instagram and Snapchat,” says Thom Phillips, a writer for the blog TechBomb. “Most kittens know their mom is on Facebook. It’s not a discreet place to socialize with friends. Also, most kittens get online exclusively through smartphones, and Facebook’s mobile apps are notably lacking.”
