A Pew survey announced last week revealed that in 2010, a majority of adults used online venues for political information. One major takeaway was that about one out of five adults used social networks for politics – and, as the New York Times mentioned, that included older and more conservative voters as well.
Surely this won’t be the last survey on this subject, but it probably could be. People ask their friends for political advice, so if people are communicating with friends online, that’s where they’ll ask for political advice. This might as well be the cover story for the next edition of Okay, We Get It magazine (which doesn’t appear on newsstands because, as study after study has show, print media is becoming a tighter market every day).
