  • @Timoluege TIm, Good point about the numbers. The PEW data is the most recent survey I've found, and if you find another one, I'd love to read it. I agree that the numbers are probably higher, and that is a safe bet. Thanks for bringing that point to light in the comments.

  • I'm a bit sceptical of the PEW data. The survey was done in Dec 2009/2010. Considering the rapid growth of social media and increased penetration, I would think that the numbers are even higher today. That does not invalidate the point that most people get news this way, rather the opposite, but I wouldn't feel comfortable quoting these numbers like that.

  • Second most prevalent place to go after leaving a news site is a social site like FB or AddThis or StumbleUpon.While these are technically clicks away from the site, they are positive clicks away, likely multiplying additional traffic to that story. The extent of their use may even be under counted here as this figure measures when people click on a link or tool to share the story. It does not record instances when users copy and paste URL’s onto a share page.  
  • For five of the news Websites studied here, Facebook ranked as the second or third most popular driver to their content.  At the top was Huffingtonpost.com, which derived 8% of its traffic from links to Huffingtonpost.com content posted on Facebook. At the low end were AOLNews.com.Twitter showed up as a referring link to only 9 of 21 top news sites. And for all but one of those nine, Twitter sent only about 1% of total traffic.
