Heavy news consumers don't use Facebook to get their news
A new study has been published from Pew Research that found one third of all Americans get their news through Facebook. The new study was released today and shows that almost 80% of people happen upon news when checking up on friends on Facebook or sharing photos. However, heavy consumers of news didn't say Facebook was an important source of news to them.
"People go to Facebook to share personal moments - and they discover the news almost incidentally," Amy Mitchell, director of journalism research at Pew, said in a statement.
Interestingly, only 4% of Facebook users surveyed during the study say that the Facebook news stream is where they obtain their news. These findings reinforce a previous study conducted by Pew that found 34% of people between 18 and 24 consumers through social media compared with 10% of adults between 50 and 64. The study also confirmed that adults between 18 and 29 account for a third Facebook news consumers. The study was conducted August 21 through September 2 and looked at 5173 adults in the US.
