Survey Reveals Which Demographics Use What Social Media [INFOGRAPHIC]

Survey Reveals Which Demographics Use What Social Media [INFOGRAPHIC] | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

A massive survey of internet users reveals trends in social media usage across numerous platforms, ages, races, genders, population density and which social media sites do they frequently visit. 

 

The Pew Research Center has released the results of a comprehensive social media survey, conducted over several years to evaluate which demographics were using social media, and on which platforms. Which social networking sites emerged on top?

 

Of the online adults surveyed at the end of 2012:

67% use Facebook

20% use LinkedIn

16% use Twitter

15% use Pinterest

13% use Instagram

6% use Tumblr

 

A decent amount of Americans appear to be using social media, but which demographics use social media in greater numbers?

 

It appears that women use social media 9% more than men do, at a whopping rate of 71%. Other frontrunners with the highest social network activity in their demographic include city dwellers(70%), Hispanics (72%) and adults with a household income below $30,000 annually (72%).

 

The most pervasive and consistent divider amongst social media users remains, unsurprisingly, their age. 83% of the young adult demographic (18-29 year olds) use social media, which is well over double the activity of online adults over 65 years old (32%).

An important corollary question is what do we use social media for?

Jenn Alevy's curator insight, May 20, 2013 4:57 AM

Interesting but not surprising. I think the older the Gen X-, Gen Y, Millenials and Digital Natives grow, the higher the stats for all ages.

Visualizing Data at the Oxford Internet Institute - A Geography of Twitter

Visualizing Data at the Oxford Internet Institute - A Geography of Twitter | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

Online social media has become an integral part of daily life for many Internet users and there are now hundreds of millions utilising these services around the world. Concomitant with this growth of usage is a desire by companies, government agencies, and academics to study and map the data trails left by people using services like Twitter, Flickr, and Facebook. The data shadows and information trails left by users online reveal social, economic, and political processes and practices.

 

Twitter, in particular, is repeatedly used as a repository of social data because of its relatively open network that allows researchers access to almost any information published through the platform. Yet, despite the many studies (both inside and outside of academia) that draw on data from Twitter, there is little scholarship devoted to the geography of Twitter.

Leadership and Emotional Intelligence

Leadership and Emotional Intelligence | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

Using emotional intelligence can help you succeed as a leader. But what is emotional intelligence, and why is it that success in life sometimes seems unrelated to intelligence and how hard you are prepared to work?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dr Goleman describes five main elements of emotional intelligence:

 

- Self-awareness.


- Self-regulation.


- Motivation.


- Empathy.


- Social skills.

 

Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and manage both your own emotions, and those of the people you lead. Having a high EQ means knowing what you are feeling, what this means, and how your emotions can affect other people. For leaders, having emotional intelligence is essential for success.

 

Take time to work on self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills. They will certainly help ensure that you succeed as a leader.
