Since the past decade, News consumption on social media has become a crucial option. There have been many claims that social media platforms are causing more divisions and trouble through sharing and engagement of the content. There has been a group of an activist trying to boost misinformation and fake News with this platform.
It might be uncertain to say that most of the news is politically dividing the people than before. But the actual reason for the division is not apparent. It might be that the access to the Information is easy or the politically driven groups trying to reach people.
It might be due to multiple reasons. Then too, social media is playing a vital role in news sharing.
That is why the day-to-day news consumption across various social media platform reports from pew Research is vital for understanding the modern scenario.
This week, Pew research has released the latest version of its report, highlighting how the USA's people are accessing the News content. And what is the critical role of each social media platform in providing news? The data has been traced from the survey sample of 11,178 people across the USA. This provides an overview of their trends and habits.
Initially, Pew Research says that there has been an actual decrease in the number of people regularly consuming News on Social media platforms in 2021. As compared to the 2020 research.
There might be a minor downfall, but it still shows that social media is still a vital part of news consumption.
In considering a specific platform for News consumption, Facebook and YouTube are still leading the way.
It is vital to establish an understanding of social media use and get some viewpoint on which platforms are considered for Information.
