In the United States, nearly two-thirds of Internet users have a social networking account but those who use it most often are not the typical tech adopters.
The Pew Internet & American Life Project has released its latest report on the way our country interacts with social networking. The subject was little more than a novelty three years ago, when Pew had reported about 29% of the population was using Facebook, Myspace, or the like.
Back in 2005, only 5% of people responding to Pew's survey said they used social media. The vast majority had probably never even heard that term.
This year, that number has soared to 65%.
