The Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project released on Monday the results of its latest survey on Internet use among adults in the United States.
The report reveals that almost three-quarters of people (72 percent) visit social networking sites. Older folks, in particular, are becoming increasingly active. Six out of ten users in the 55-64 year age bracket and 43 percent of those ages 65+ have profiles. Adoption rates among the latter have increased threefold since 2009.
The Pew Research Center also dedicated part of its survey to Twitter:
The percentage of internet users who are on Twitter has more than doubled since November 2010, currently standing at 18%. Internet users ages 18-29 are the most likely to use Twitter—30% of them now do so.
