Graphic Truth: Where does the US get its online news?

Facebook continues to lead the pack for social media sites Americans turn to for news, according to recent polling from the Pew Research Center.

The site has a well-documented history of being a breeding ground for misinformation, which continues to be a topic of concern in Washington with the 2024 election on the horizon.

Pew found that half of US adults get their news from social media at least some of the time, while 30% regularly get their news from Facebook. Next up was YouTube, followed by Instagram, TikTok, and X, formerly known as Twitter. Like Facebook, all of these platforms have also faced issues with the spread of disinformation as well as rampant hate speech.
