Social Networking: Two-Thirds of all Adults Online Use Social Networking Sites

August 26, 2011 5:03 pm

We have written about social networking statistics before. We spotted this today:

“Fully 65% of adult internet users now say they use a social networking site like MySpace, Facebook or LinkedIn, up from 61% one year ago. This marks the first time in Pew Internet surveys that 50% of all adults use social networking sites. ”

How do we digest this number? We know that every third person in the world is now connected. We also know that two-thirds of everyone online uses a social network. Hold on – we did this before – don’t we know that every tenth person in the world has a facebook account?
