Internet is now new news source for Young Adults

The Internet, presently, is the prominent news source of national and international news for young people as lying in the age group of 18 to 29. This conclusion has arrived from a study conducted by the Pew Research Center in America. In 2010, 65% of people younger than 30 told the Internet (Internet) to their source for news, approx double what that to be about 34% in 2007. The number for television news viewer has been dropped to about 68% to 52% at that time.

The survey was conducted among about 1,500 American adults who were surveyed over there. About 41% told that they depend upon for their national and international news from the Internet, up 17% from 2007. Sixty-six percent show television as below to about 74% and this trend soon is spreading to other areas as well. Forty-eight percent in age group 30-59 told Internet as their main source of the news that too up about the level too 32% from in 2007. Though the number of those in the 51-64 age group who consider television their main news source (71%) is about the same, those who turn to the Internet (34%) is nearly equal to the number who cite newspapers (38%). The amount of people 65 and older who get their news from the Internet has risen from 5% to 14%, but television remains the chief source for 79% of respondents. And it is too true that television viewer ship culture has shifted in a recent few years.
