    among and between.

    I tried to help on Wordreference. I wrote a post " It was quite popular several years ago and it still is. (among kids )".
    I'm not sure whether I used "among" correctly. When I was writing it, I put "between". In 10 seconds I replaced it with "among".
    I'm confused! Which is correct?

    Thanks.

    p.s the full context:

    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Yes, "The word is popular among kids" is right.

    Re: among and between.

    "Popular with" should also be correct, according to my Oxford dictionary.
