The Facebook Obsession

Are we obsessed with Face­book? It’s hard to argue with the num­bers pre­sent­ed visu­al­ly in this artis­tic lit­tle video by Alex Trimpe. One data point that struck me (if true): 48% of young Amer­i­cans learn about the news, about what’s hap­pen­ing in the world, through Face­book. A big shift in the way infor­ma­tion gets into peo­ple’s hands.

And that’s part of a trend we’re see­ing here too. More and more, Open Cul­ture fans are join­ing our Face­book page, let­ting our dai­ly posts trick­le into their Face­book News Feeds, then shar­ing the intel­li­gent media with friends. You can join our Face­book Page here, or also fol­low us on Twit­ter where we tweet and re-tweet extra cul­tur­al good­ies 24/7.

Thanks Ian for the heads up on the FB video…
