According to a recent report, 30% of US Adults are getting their news on Facebook
A new study from Pew Research shows that out of the 64% of American adults who use Facebook, nearly half (30%) use the social network to keep up with news.
On YouTube, 10% of U.S. adults use the video platform to get news, while only 8% look for news on Twitter.
While these percentages, compared to each social network's overall user base, are impressive, they're still small portions of the U.S. adult population. Still, as digital and social media evolves, we can expect social news consumption to advance alongside it.
The above chart, created by Statista, breaks down how social media users are using their platforms to get news.
