Social Media Not All Good All the Time


An online Harris Poll of adults reveals that 40% of Americans have received a good suggestion for something to try as a result of their use of social media. Additional findings include:

• 43% say they have been offended by posts, comments or pictures they’ve seen; and 26% say that unintended persons have viewed links or comments they’ve posted.

• Younger Americans claim positive benefits as a result of their social media use much more often than do older adults—59% of Echo Boomers (those 18-33) say they have received a positive suggestion for something to try from their activity on social media, compared to 44% of Gen Xers (those 34-45), 34% of Baby Boomers (those 46-64) and just one in five Matures (those 65 and older) (19%).

• One-quarter (24%)of Echo Boomers have found a job opportunity through social media, while only one in 10% Baby Boomers say the same.
