News

We enjoy sharing all our News on Twitter mostly (albeit we do have a Facebook page and an Instagram account too). Here below a very helpful survey of the American Press Institute (2015) providing numbers and user feeling in support of the use of Social Media for News.

Topics Social Media users follow in the News

'By various measures, News and Twitter are intimately linked.

Fully 86% of Twitter users say they use the social network for news, and the vast majority of those, 74%, do so daily.

The majority of Twitter users also believe that they now get more news than they did before they joined the social network. Fully 6 out of 10 Twitter users (61%) say they get more news since joining. Just over a quarter (24%) say their news consumption has stayed about the same. Only 2% estimate they consume less news since they joined Twitter.

News on Twitter is also highly participatory, meaning it is more than just consuming news. Fully 64% of Twitter users say they both get and share news on the service. Just 21% say they just consume; only 2% say they get their news elsewhere and just use Twitter to share it.'
