Internet news sources the growing norm among young people

According to a study conducted by Pew-Research, only a third of young people, 30 years and younger, watched a news broadcast and 13 percent of young people read a newspaper yesterday.

The numbers for print and broadcast news are rapidly declining. According to a graph provided by Pew-Research, since roughly between 2003 and 2004 until 2012, online news sources have been  the rising norm. In short, most people got yesterday’s news from online or a mobile device, a practice that has steadily increased since 2006.


Another growing trend is that young people tend to catch wind of news stories via social network. Since 2010 to 2012, the number of people finding news stories on social networking sites have increased to 9 percent to 19 percent.
