Are you on Facebook, LinkedIn and/or Twitter? If not, you might think about joining the social revolution! The Pew Internet and American Life Project recently published some impressive statistics about social networks and just who’s online today! Interesting to note that “as of August 2012, 69% of online adults use social networking sites”. That’s a big number! Not so surprising is that most of these adults polled choose to interact with Facebook (primarily) followed by the other major social networking sites (see below), and women are more likely to be using social networking sites as compared to men.
As of August 2012 Pew polling noted:
- 66% of online adults say they use Facebook
- 20% of online adults say they use LinkedIn
- 16% of online adults say they use Twitter
- 12% of online adults say they use Pinterest
- 12% of online adults say they use Instagram
