Do you know that more and more people are turning to social media for the latest news? This doesn’t mean that no one is watching TV or reading the newspapers any longer, though.
It’s just that social media as a news source is easier to access.
Think about it:
You can access social media from virtually anywhere, so long as you have a network and a portable device such as a mobile phone, tablet, or laptop. With Wi-Fi hotspots everywhere, social media users can read their news from the bank or supermarket queues, train station, during your lunch break, you name it.
Social media is faster when it comes to delivering breaking news. Why? Anyone can upload news content via their social media account, even before news agencies arrive on the scene.
Also, users can engage in discussions to get different perspectives, which would be impossible with traditional news sources.
So, today we decided to look into the question of how many people get their news from social media.
Let’s dive right in.
