Demography is social media destiny

Demography is social media destiny

I’ve been bugging all of you to get on social media, particularly Twitter.

Twitter in particular is how conservative bloggers and pundits communicate with each other and is one of the primary sources from which we get news items and stories to write about.  Facebook — for all its privacy problems which are real — still is a powerful force for people politically herding together to become more powerful than they are individually.

If you haven’t already, follow Legal Insurrection on Twitter and Facebook.

This infographic from DocStoc (which we use to upload files) demonstrates the demographics of social media users:

I’d be curious to know how these statistics were compiled. Seems off to me. Take Twitter for example; when there is any major event, Twitter is the FIRST and BEST place most bloggers/press/people go to say something breaking. It’s the biggest bang for the comment buck and Michelle Malkin proves that theory with her Twitchy site. So I find it difficult to believe that only 16% of the population uses it.

I defy those stats: I’m Female 65 White Rural College Degree $$ yet I am a social media junkie with the EXCEPTION of Facebook. Never have. Never will. But don’t go taking away my Twitter!

…and less usage as age increases.

Gee. Think that, y’know, having kids and an actual job might have something to do with that?

What about the demographic that consists of luddites like myself who enjoy their privacy, while still being able to communicate via blogs, e-mail and *gasp* telephone?

    I concur and have no intention of becoming a herd junkie!

    There’s ’nuff people tracking me already…
