Poll: Are you spending more time on social media?

A new study has found the majority of Irish people use at least one social media site – but is social media fatigue setting in?

A NEW STUDY has confirmed what a lot of us already know – the amount of people in Ireland using social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter is continuing to grow.

The Ipsos MRBI survey found that 56 per cent of the population now uses Facebook while 27 per cent use Twitter. The number of people who don’t use social media is still substantial – more than one third of people say they don’t use any of the services – but that number continues to decline.

Given these results, we’re asking: Are you spending more time on social media than you used to?

Poll Results:

It's about the same (1336)
Yes, I definitely use it more now than I used to (711)
I don't know/I don't keep track (399)
I don't use social media at all (292)
