Pew Internet Research has determined that 73% of adults who are online use social networking tools, with Facebook retaining its position as the dominant platform. The number of users expanding into other sites such as LinkledIn, Pinterest and Twitter is increasing – close to 42% use multiple sites!
These numbers are bound to grow as Millennials become adults, and implications for libraries in this study include the necessity of social media planning.
