Here Are the Top 5 Social Networks in the U.S.
A recent study from Kantar has shown that it’s basically Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) or bust when it comes to the social media sites Americans use. A majority of Americans have Facebook accounts, but after Facebook more Americans reported not using a social media site at all than any of the other top social networking sites.
The Kantar study collected information from 1,011 American via a telephone interview of adults age 18 and older. Here’s the top five most-used social networking sites in the U.S.
Seventeen percent of those surveyed said that they use a Twitter account. Twitter came in slightly ahead of LinkedIn (NYSE:LNKD), Facebook’s Instagram and Pinterest, which came in at 16 percent, 12 percent, and 11 percent respectively. The survey also found that men are more likely to have a Twitter account than women. Twitter is expected to make its IPO filing public sometime in the next week, which will give investors and social media analysts more information about the company’s financials and business model that has been under wraps.
