It was the best of times, it was the worst of times

Pew Research released a study on the percentage of adults who use Social Networking sites.  I saw the story on Mashable and on Read Write Web and I have to say I am confused.  Did they study show good or bad news.  Take a look:

On Mashable doesn’t sound to good “Only 50%”


On Read Write Web sounds great “For the first time ever, 50% of all American adults are using social networking sites”


I guess it is all how you look at the data, the glass is either half empty or half full. 


Mashable: Only 50% of U.S. Adults Use Social Media

Read Write Web: Half of U.S. Adults Use Social Networking Sites

Pew Research: 65% of Online Adults Use Social Networking Sites
