PEW study: How social media is reshaping news

Interesting statistics from PEW research center showing that social media increasingly is becoming a pathway to news. 30% of US adults already get their news via Facebook. It is also interesting to see the difference on different sites: while Facebook struggles with realtime delivery (due to the newsfeed algorithm, there will most probably often also be older stories in your feed), half of those who use Twitter also get their news there. And on Reddit (with of course much less overall users), it is two thirds who consume news.
