Washington - Are some social networking websites used more for reading news than others? A new report from Pew Research Center reveals news use across all popular social media platforms—including LinkedIn, Google Plus, reddit, YouTube, Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook.
How do different social networking websites compare when it comes to their users wanting news? How many people read news across more than one social site? What has happened to their news use on more traditional platforms?
Pew Research Center Journalism Project published a report including the percentage of social media users who get news on those sites; the demographics of these users and how much traditional media they consume.
This news use report is part of a multi-part research project by the Pew Research Center, in collaboration with the Knight Foundation, looking at the role of news on social media platforms.
The findings of the report show that the level of news consumption varies greatly on different social networking sites — about half of Facebook and Twitter users get news on those sites while YouTube users hardly use the social media platform for reading news.
