More Adults Get Their News from Social Media Now

Per a new Pew Research Poll out, U.S. adults consume their news through social media over newspapers.

A December 10th poll from Pew Research Center found that more American adults consume news through social media — not traditional newspapers.

The poll can be broken down as this:

  • 49 percent of respondents learn about the news from TV
  • 33 percent of respondents read online newspapers
  • 20 percent of respondents get their news from social media
  • 16 percent of respondents get their news from traditional newspapers

These are very interesting stats. What do you think? Is this an accurate observation of how people obtain information as it relates to the news?
