Via Cecilia Kang of the Washington Post, a new survey from Pew sheds some light on just how much social networking sites are affecting our lives:
The study reported that 65 percent of all online adults surveyed in May said they were using social networking sites, up from 61 percent a year ago. The social media users represent 50 percent of all American adults, Pew said.
On a given day, only e-mail and search engines are used more than social networks by adult Internet users, Pew said.
Pew’s survey is available on their website.
