Nicoletta Gay's insight:

3) Half of all adult Facebook users have more than 200 friends in their network.

4) 12% of Facebook users say that someone has asked them to “unfriend” a person in their network.

5) Facebook users “like” their friends’ content and comment on photos relatively frequently, but most don’t change their own status that often.

6) Half of internet users who do not use Facebook themselves live with someone who does.

Social Media Update 2013 | Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project | Socially | Scoop.it
Nicoletta Gay's insight:

Some 73% of online adults now use a social networking site of some kind.

 

Facebook is the dominant social networking platform in the number of users, but a striking number of users are now diversifying onto other platforms.

 

Some 42% of online adults now use multiple social networking sites. In addition, Instagram users are nearly as likely as Facebook users to check in to the site on a daily basis.

 

These are among the key findings on social networking site usage and adoption from a new survey from the Pew Research Center’s Internet Project.
