A Pew Social Networking Fact Sheet tells us what our students use to connect. Of the people in the survey, 90% of the 18 to 29 year olds use social networks. That includes:
- 71% of online adults use Facebook
- 17% use Instagram
- 21% use Pinterest
- 22% use LinkedIn
From what we have seen in class, about 100% use text. Maybe more! That is if we count them texting while they are reading Facebook.
One can imagine that the older you are, the less likely you are to be using social media. However the old folks are not that much different. Of the 50 - 64 year olds, 71% use social media.
