How does your social media use stack up against other Canadians’?
One in three anglophone Canadians says not a single day goes by without checking into their social media feeds.
It’s one of many social networking statistics compiled in a new report by the Media Technology Monitor, based on surveys conducted in the fall with 4,001 anglophone Canadians.
Almost seven in 10 Internet users said they were regular social media users, logging on at least once a month. That figure was up by about six per cent compared to 2011.
Facebook remains far and away the most popular social network. About 63 per cent of Internet users and 93 per cent of social media users said they’re on Facebook.
While Twitter gets a lot of media hype and is growing rapidly it’s not all that commonly used in Canada, according to MTM’s numbers.
