Social Sound Bite: Facebook Is NOT Dead to Young People 12–24

social sound bite

On this week’s Social Sound Bite – recorded live at the KXIC studios in Iowa City – Jay and I discussed new data from Edison Research on social media usage among Americans age 12–24. Of particular interest is the fact that Facebook is still the dominant social network for this demographic in spite of characterizations to the contrary. Listen for the full sound bite and enjoy these useful links to the news, trends, and tips included in this week’s show.
