A Pew Report released today shows that social media is used by over 117 million adults in the US, up over 50% from just three years ago. How do they view their social media experience? When asked, “What is the one word that describes your experience using social networking sites?” the overwhelming response was “good.”
Mashable's spin on the Pew Report was that social media is far from ubiquitous. The reality is that over 65% of Internet users are also social network users. No, that's not 100%, but it's a big audience that is quickly growing. Interestingly, they interpreted the “good” response regarding user experience as a negative. Apparently anything short of “AWESOME” is yawn-worthy at Mashable.
Where do you think we will be three years from now? What percentage will be using social media in 2014? Leave a comment with your thoughts.
