The Pew Research Center has released the results of their 2014 Internet Project survey, and have compared it to the two previous years. In this chart they’ve compared five of the most popular social media sites, based on online adults in the United States. 81 percent of adults in the U.S. use the internet.
All sites are seeing increased growth year-by-year, except Facebook. Use of Facebook stagnated at 71 percent.
Facebook does have the highest rate of engagement, with 70 percent of adults using the site daily.
Facebook use is still growing among older adults: 56 percent of internet users 65 and older now use the site, according to the study. That is the first time usage among the older demographic has gone over 50 percent, though grandma and grandpa aren’t welcomed additions for the younger set.
Indeed, young adults continue to use Instagram more often: 53 percent of internet users age 18-29 use Instagram, the highest percentage ever.
