It ends up that social networking is the boyfriend we refuse to ditch for good.
Even with a year of social media scandals and general disbelief, U.S. adults are still using Facebook and other social networking sites at the very same rates that they were only one year before, a new Pew Research Center survey has discovered. That is compared to what Pew found in mid-2018: that people were taking steps to limit their social media usage. Even if we say we want to stop Facebook, we’re not pulling on the plug.
Between Jan. 8 and Feb. 7, 2019, Pew surveyed a weighted, representative sample of 1,502 U.S. adults about their societal websites use. Many of their findings back up previous trends: younger demographics prefer Instagram and Snapchat, while middle-aged and older adults are more frequent consumers of Facebook.
