This is a somewhat weak hook for a story

…..the millennials not using social media

Hmm. There’s 7 billion people in the world, 1 billion on Facebook, 200 million or so on Twitter.

OK, age groups and that but still, would have thought that not using would be the norm, no?

  1. It’s in the Guardian’s “US News” section, which implies that they’re only counting left-pondian millenials, not the entire world’s under-35s. The linked Pew report also clearly refers to Americans, not the entire world.

  2. 1 billion on Facebook.
    Reckon I must have half dozen F/B accs, opened for various reasons. Never made a single entry. I”ve a suspicion I”m not unusual
    So maybe an overstatement.

    Couple of dozen here, back from when I actually used faecesbook. (Back then it was normal for the time-wasting game apps to insist that you spammed your friends before the game would run, so I had a bunch of “friends” that didn’t care who spammed them.)
