With people spending more and more time tending to their social media presence, it’s not surprising to learn that a growing number learn about news events through those platforms.
According to data released by the Pew Research Center, 64% of American adults use Facebook (FB) each month. Half of those users — 30% of Americans — consider the social media website to be a news source, TechCrunch notes.
The Pew study found that Facebook is the most used social media platform among U.S. adults, followed by YouTube (51%), LinkedIn (19%), Twitter (16%), Pinterest (15%) and Google Plus (14%).
