INFOGRAPHIC: Breaking Down Who College Students Follow On Social Media

Posted: Updated:

College students hardly know a world without the internet, technology and social media. There's a good chance that today's college freshmen never even used the social media sites of old like MySpace or LiveJournal.

CampusLIVE surveyed students about how they use Twitter and other social media sites. They found that a little more than half of students follow companies they like on social media, and almost the same amount follow celebrities. Kim Kardashian turns out to be the most followed celeb on Twitter by college kids.

Another interesting note, students prefer by a huge margin to login to social media sites on a laptop or desktop computer, rather than on their smartphones.
