Where do Americans get their news?
Pew Research just released their latest Factsheet for US social media usage for news-related purposes. The data shows that of the 70% of respondents who claim to get news from social media, the likes of Twitter $TWTR, Facebook $META, Reddit and YouTube $GOOGL have fallen slightly. Twitter & Facebook still remain clear leaders.

Interestingly, it is TikTok that shows the most growth in adoption, with 33% of regular social media users getting their news from the site, up from 22% in 2020.

Here is a more granular view across a range of demographics.

Elon is a lot of things.. Dumb is not one of them.
Hot off the press this morning it appears $TWTR has a whistleblower who corroborates Elon’s concerns around the amount of bots/spam accounts on the platform. This is relevant as the higher the % of fake accounts there are the less the company is worth considering it’s main revenue driver is advertising which is based on the number of users a company can reach on the platform.

He went further to call out security concerns, privacy concerns, and content moderation concerns (noo wayyy I’m shocked 😮)

Let’s see how this plays out in October’s show down.
This why I hate $TWTR and I am long $COMMONSTOCK
An anonymous indeterminate pessimistic value guy disparaging a known and respected determinate optimistic growth guy.

I have practiced all 3 value, momentum, and growth, and can tell you all 3 are valid ways to make money but doing this for fame and viral growth is cancerous.

This post makes it obvious why achieving a truly determinate optimistic growth mindset is difficult and people who do that are already CONTRARIAN by default.

What do you think? Tell me your style(value/growth/momentum/others) and your thoughts.

All I can say I like is if the fund only started in 2019 or 2020 I look at returns ex 2020 because that person as many others just got lucky (maybe or maybe not) but if they have been invested for a long time , you have to give some credit for surviving so far yet in this case if you do ex 2020 returns don’t look so good so I guess it really depends … to me others performance is more or less noise and either ego boosting or ego depressing

Social media usage among US teens 📱
A new Pew Research Center survey on social media usage of US teens aged 13 to 17 revealed which services they use:

$GOOGL YouTube: 95%
TikTok: 67%
$META Instagram: 62%
$SNAP Snapchat: 59%
$META Facebook: 32%
$TWTR Twitter: 23%
$AMZN Twitch: 20%
$META WhatsApp: 17%
Reddit: 14%
Tumblr: 5%

A few observations and takeaways from my side:

  • The use of Facebook by teens has dropped significantly. It’s definitely not cool anymore.

  • TikTok has gained massive market share in no time. Fascinating development, since it came from nowhere, and on top of that, it’s not from the US.

  • With YouTube and TikTok dominating, it’s safe to say that video rules. Mostly text-based experiences like Twitter struggle. With Snapchat being popular as well, it’s safe to assume that teens communicate via video messages a lot.

  • Most teens use YouTube on a daily basis. I guess for entertainment and learning. The new generation is growing up completely different from the older ones, with the world’s knowledge instantly at their fingertips. I hope they use it well.
