Pew Report: The Social Side of the Internet

The Social Side of the Internet – Technology use has become deeply embedded in group life and is affecting the way civic and social groups behave and the way they impact their communities, by Lee Rainie, Kristen Purcell, Aaron Smith, Jan 18, 2011

  • “The internet is now deeply embedded in group and organizational life in America. A new national survey by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project has found that 75% of all American adults are active in some kind of voluntary group or organization and internet users are more likely than others to be active: 80% of internet users participate in groups, compared with 56% of non-internet users. Moreover, social media users are even more likely to be active: 82% of social network users and 85% of Twitter users are group participants.”
