Social media rules the world. Don’t believe us. Ask the billions of people around the world who log on to check into their favorite social media sites daily.
According to a recent study by the Pew Research Center, 67 percent of adults online are using social networking sites daily. A few more interesting stats from the Pew study:
- We spend an average of eight hours or more per month on social media.
- 71 percent of social media users are women. 62 percent are men.
- 67 percent of adults online use Facebook, 16 percent use Twitter and 15 percent use Pinterest.
- African-Americans (68%) and Hispanics (72%) use social media more than Whites (65%). Especially Twitter.
