Hi:

The latest report from PEW is out on social media usage! I love PEW and their reports. It is the best time of the year when they update their social media data 🙂

Q: What are some of the highlights of the report?

  • 65% of adults now use social networking sites – a nearly tenfold jump in the past decade.
  • “Age differences: Seniors make strides – Young adults (ages 18 to 29) are the most likely to use social media – fully 90% do. Still, usage among those 65 and older has more than tripled since 2010 when 11% used social media. Today, 35% of all those 65 and older report using social media, compared with just 2% in 2005.”
  • Men Vs. Women: “Today, 68% of women and 62% of men report social media usage, a difference that is not statistically significant.”

What I have for you:

  • A link to the PEW study, a story on mass layoffs at Twitter next week, an incredible infographic on the number of gun deaths in America and an article on the end of the boss.
  • Video: A must watch video of gun extremists in their own words. Please watch and share.
  • A great resource to help you get things done and an amazing list of online collaboration tools for you and your team(s).
