PEW Internet har netop udsendt et par relevante rapporter:

65% of online adults use social networking sites
Hele rapporten 65% of online adults use social networking sites – Women maintain their foothold on SNS use and older Americans are still coming aboard (14 s./pdf)

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
65% of online adults use social networking sites, and most describe their experiences in positive terms.
Two-thirds of adult internet users (65%) now say they use a social networking site like MySpace, Facebook or LinkedIn, up from 61% one year ago. That’s more than double the percentage that reported social networking site usage in 2008 (29%). And for the first time in Pew Internet surveys it means that half of all adults (50%) use social networking sites. The pace with which new users have flocked to social networking sites has been staggering; when we first asked about social networking sites in February of 2005, just 8% of internet users – or 5% of all adults – said they used them.

The Digital Revolution and Higher Education
Hele rapporten The Digital Revolution and Higher Education – College Presidents, Public Differ on Value of Online Learning (29 s./pdf)

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
This report is based on findings from a pair of Pew Research Center surveys conducted in spring 2011. One is a telephone survey of a nationally representative sample of 2,142 adults ages 18 and older. The other is an online survey, done in association with the Chronicle of Higher Education, among the presidents of 1,055 two-year and four-year private, public, and for-profit colleges and universities.
