Social Media & Internet Use Hit Plateau

Social Media & Internet Use Hit Plateau

BloggerIt seems that since 2016 there has been little, to no growth, in Americans who use the Internet, smartphone devices and social media. For about 20 years the rate of adoption for these was extremely rapid. However, according to Pew Research Center, everyone who wants to be on social media, use smartphones and surf the Internet is doing so, or doesn’t have access, or the ability to pay for them. Use of new connected devices such as wearables and smart TV’s continue to expand, but this comes from people who are already connected. People also are switching social media sites too, such as moving from Facebook to Instagram, but the total number of new social media users are just not growing to any extent.
