In 2005, 2% of seniors used social media, compared with 35% today.
A special analysis of 27 national surveys of Americans across the past decade documents this substantial spread of technology throughout the population, although the overall number of users of social networking sites has leveled off since 2013.
At the same time, there continues to be growth in social media usage among some groups that were not among the earliest adopters, including older Americans.
Those differences have persisted even as each group has seen dramatic growth in usage.
Today, 78% of those living in the highest-income households use social media, compared with 56% of those in the lowest-income households – a 22-point difference.
