In a Pew Research Center survey of 3,003 U.S. adults, 17% said they accessed news on cell phone or tablet device the day before. Even more — 20% — said they regularly get news from social networks like Facebook or Google+, nearly the triple the number that did a year ago.
 Just 13% said they have used Twitter or read Twitter messages, 11% said they have seen news on Twitter and three percent said they received news through Twitter the day before. By comparison, 53% said they use other social networking sites, a group that includes Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn, and 19% said they received news from one of those sites yesterday. It’s likely the vast majority were referring to Facebook.

US Wireless Internet Usage Insights :

In  2010, six in ten American adults (59%) are wireless internet users. Due to the quickly evolvingnature of mobile technologies, our definition of a wireless internet user has changed several times since we began studying this topic; throughout this report, a wireless internet user is defined as someone whodoes one or more of the following:

• Go online from a laptop using a wi-fi or mobile broadband internet connection.
86% of laptop owners go online in this way, which represents 47% of all American adults.
