STUDY: Gays Use Facebook and Twitter More Than Straights
Ever seem like everyone on Facebook and Twitter is gay? You're not crazy.
Pew discovered that 80% of the LGBT people surveyed have used a social network site like Facebook or Twitter, compared with 58% of the general public and 68% of U.S. Internet users.
Could this be because more LGBT adults are more likely to use the Internet for dating and finding friends? Asked about their purpose in going online, 55% of LGBT adults — specifically 69% of gay men — said they've met new LGBT friends online or through social media.
Why do you think LGBTs are more likely to have a Facebook or Twitter account? Can a gay man survive in today's culture without some sort of social media presence?
