The Pew Internet Report On Adults and Social Networks

According to Pew's new report:

  • 35% of online adults now have at least one profile on a social networking site, more than quadruple the amount that did in February 2005, when the figure was 8%.
  • The number of grown-ups jumping on the social media bandwagon has roughly doubled every 18 months over the past four years.
  • 60% of adult social network users restrict access to their profiles so that only their friends can see it
