Social web and politics
July 15, 2012 2 Comments
Here’s a very cool graphic (via Atlantic) of how which social media (and some selected non-particularly-social media– not sure how they decided what to include) correlates with political ideology and political engagement:
A couple observations:
1) Well, I should be in the top-left corner. For what it’s worth, I’ve recently become a regular Buzzfeed user (as you’ve likely noticed from the photos) and seriously thought to myself, I should get on quora. This morning I did when doing some research on cameras and it actually did a much better job answering my questions than any other q&a site I’ve visited.
2) Love how FB and youtube are right in the middle of the map. Perfectly representative of America.
3) Clearly I’m staying away from Farmville.
4) I do wonder what it is about Ebay. My wife and I both love ebay.
