As the Pew chart below shows:
- nearly nine-in-ten Americans today are online, up from about half in the early 2000s
roughly three-quarters of Americans (77%) now own a smartphone
- nearly three-quarters (73%) of Americans indicate that they have broadband service at home
- 69% of U.S. adults are social media users
- 51% of U.S. adults own a tablet computer, up from just 3% in 2010
While none of these numbers are surprising, it's good to know what they are.
