This is a short but ultimately informative post describing recent social media trends in Canada. I think we have a slightly different flavour of social media use here. The major findings (quoted):

  • young Canadians are more purposeful and active posters on social media than older generations
  • most online Canadian adults ... sometimes choose not to post political messages on social media (to avoid offending others)
  • most online Canadian adult are exposed to a variety of perspectives on social media
  • online Canadian adults are generally not comfortable with the use of social media to infer public opinion

These feel pretty much like my attitudes too, and doesn't feel like it contradicts my understanding of Canadian social media. Via Philip Mai.
