This week I decided to get an insight into social media usage… so what better way then to publish my survey onto social media to track down some answers.
I used a series of 5 questions to get an indication on how people were feeling about the pressures of social media.
Q1. What is your age bracket?
I started my survey by asking the age of the person undertaking the survey so I could later correlate age with social media usage (the results as follows):
The majority of my participants were young adults in the age bracket of 18 -24 years of age making up 75% of the total survey pool.
Q2. How many social media sites are you registered to?
I wanted to see if I could find out the average number of social media sights people subscribe too.
I was interested to find out that 50% of my survey pool were subscribed to more then 5 social media sites.
Q3. How many times do you access social media per day?
I was shocked to see that 50% of my survey pool checked/ accessed their social media sites more then 50 times per day.
Q4. Do you ever worry about the amount of followers or likes you receive?
My survey displayed that at some point all the participants worried about the followers or likes they were receiving on a social media platform.
Q5. Do you rely on social media to communicate?
100% of the survey pool agreed that they rely on social media to communicate.
Overall, after reviewing all the data I had received I found it shocking that social media is constantly being checked by young people to the point that they are becoming worried about their social media presence. But at the same time, the data shows, where would they be without it? By conducting this survey it has just left me with one thought, do we rely on social media too much?
Im going to leave you guys with a interesting video, take a look:
Until next time,
