The figures reported here are for social media usage among all adults, not just among those Americans who are internet users.
In many previous Pew Research reports, the share of social media users has been reported as the proportion of who had adopted such sites, rather than the full adult population, which continues to include a relatively small share (currently 15%) who still remain offline.
Those differences have persisted even as each group has seen dramatic growth in usage.
Today, 78% of those living in the highest-income households use social media, compared with 56% of those in the lowest-income households – a 22-point difference.
While usage among young adults started to leveled off as early as 2010, since then there has been a surge in usership among those 65 and older.
In 2005, 2% of seniors used social media, compared with 35% today.
" We only mapped apps for gay dudes (and straight/mixed orientation apps in a separate map) because the market for apps specifically targeting lesbians is much less developed and couldn't be compared across borders in the same way.
App Annie only identified two major apps targeting lesbians: Les Park, which is strongest in China, and HER, which has consistently ranked at around the 100th most popular free app in the U. Apple App store since July, on some days topping Grindr's downloads.
Nearly two-thirds of American adults (65%) use social networking sites, up from 7% when Pew Research Center began systematically tracking social media usage in 2005.
