Pew Study Findings on Social Media Use in the USA, 2014 & 2015, Ann Arbor

Pew Study Findings on Social Media Use in the USA, 2014 & 2015, Ann Arbor | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it
While Facebook remains the most popular social media site, other platforms — like LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter — saw higher rates of growth over the past year. In 2014, 52% of online adults used two or more social media sites, up from 42% in 2013.

   

Facebook continues to be the most popular social media site, but its membership saw little change from 2013. The one notable exception is older adults: For the first time in Pew Research findings, more than half (56%) of internet users ages 65 and older use Facebook. Overall, 71% of internet users are on Facebook, a proportion that represents no change from August 2013.
 

Every other social media platform measured saw significant growth between 2013 and 2014.

  • Instagram not only increased its overall user figure by nine percentage points, but also saw significant growth in almost every demographic group. 
  • LinkedIn continued to grow among groups with which it was already popular, such as professionals and college graduates, while... 
  • Twitter and Pinterest saw increases in usership across a variety of demographic groups.

The engagement of Facebook users continues to grow, while daily use on other platforms shows little change.

Facebook’s large base of users continues to be very active. Fully 70% engage with the site daily (and 45% do so several times a day), a significant increase from the 63% who did so in 2013. About half (49%) of Instagram users and 17% of Pinterest users engage with their respective platforms daily, although neither of these represent a significant change from 2013. 
   
The findings reported here were collected in omnibus surveys underwritten by the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. The survey questions were designed in consultation with Dr. Nicole Ellison and Dr. Cliff Lampe from the University of Michigan’s School of Information.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Rumors of Facebook's demise have been a bit exaggerated.  Social media is firmly in the mainstream of marketing, as is the growth of seniors using Facebook.    Also note that based on American adults who use the internet, using several types of social media is on the rise.   ~  Deb
