Pew Internet: Young Adults Lead in Social Networking Site Usage for Political Engagement

According to a report published by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, young adults, ages 18-29 (42%), are more likely than older adults, ages 50 or older (33%), to use social networking sites for political purposes.
