Temkin Group just published a data snapshot, Social Media Benchmark, 2016. This annual research effort shows how consumer use of social media sites on both computers and mobile phones are changing. Here’s a description of the data snapshot:
In January 2016, we surveyed 10,000 U.S. consumers about how frequently they use social media on their computers and mobile phones, and we then compared these usage rates to analogous data we collected in January 2012, January 2013, January 2014, & January 2015. This analysis looks at the frequency with which consumers in different age groups use computers and mobile phones to access Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Tumblr, and third-party rating sites.
The data snapshot has 13 graphics with data. Here’s a portion of one of the graphics:.
