Using Facebook As A News Source
by news

A study indicates there aren't a lot of real newshounds on Facebook but many of those who go nosing around the site end up with a meaty bone or two when it comes to information.

The study by the Pew Research Center found that only 4-percent of Facebook users say it's the most important way they get news. Yet, 47 percent of adults who use the site say they end up getting news there either through links posted by friends or through news sources they follow.

Either way, the number of Facebook users represents nearly a-third of the country's adult population so the site can be seen as an important source for news.

As one of those who responded to the Pew survey said, "Facebook is a good way to find out news without actually looking for it."
