News Consumption in Social Media is pretty low

Or lets say lower than I expected. According to a PEW study, 30% Of Facebook users are consuming news, but it’s mostly “incidental” consumption, and 73% of those news are celebrity, yellow press and such.
Then again, as always, you have to look at how the study was conducted. And if you ask people if they use Facebook to read news, many might say 'nope' while following 10 newspapers and 8 magazines and liking every story.
