Who Is on Social Media?

The Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project just released The State of Social Media Users based on the results from a late 2012 survey they conducted. The report  breaks down who is on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr and Instagram via key demographics such as age, gender, race, income, education and population density.

New Pew Research Center data on social media users.

Not surprisingly, Facebook has the biggest percentage of Internet users with a whopping 67% compared to Twitter in second place with just 16% of adult Internet users having a Twitter account. (“Internet users” meaning those who could access the Internet either via desktop or mobile device.)  Also not surprisingly, the majority of Internet users on these social networks are 18-29 years old and are more often women than men.

However, those of you with older donors shouldn’t dismiss social media, especially Facebook and Pinterest. The report found that of Internet users aged 50-64, 57% of them are on Facebook, along with 35% of those who are 65 and older. Also, the vast majority of Internet users on Pinterest are over 30. And to uphold every stereotype you have heard about Pinterest users, only 5% of male Internet users are on the site with the majority being women in suburban and rural areas.

Just a few things to think about: This survey only represents the United States. Also, this report does not indicate how active these users are on each network. Some social networks have odd ways of defining what it means to be “active.” For example, Facebook considers you active if you leave a comment on a blog that requires a Facebook account to log in regardless of the last time you visited Facebook.com itself. Google+ has also come under fire for including anyone who sends an email through Gmail as being an active Google+ user even if you don’t ever check out your Google+ newsfeed or profile.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  • http://www.teennudesite.com additional info

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  • http://www.weareteens.net have a peek at this site

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
