The use of technology, the Internet and mobile applications is widespread on the island. Hence, state media is investigating these apps, which are consumed by young Cubans on a daily basis and are the people who spend the most time connected to the network of networks. What surprise?
According to a report by the government website Cubadebate, in a survey of official bodies, in which more than a thousand Cubans participated, the most used and consumed applications are: WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. This is the top 5 of many.
Do you agree or are you one of those who use Facebook more than the rest?

Cubans have WhatsApp as their preferred messaging app, although many also do so through Telegram. In the latter, the content of the class is shared by many teachers and kept in mind by the students. Instagram takes a lot, but it is necessary for “status”.
“I enjoy myself so much I hardly ever get out of it. There is so much diverse information, from artists and public figures. Also the reels are very interesting because they put a funny post on you as well as an important topic that people need to see,” one Cuban tweeted on Instagram.
