Don’t be misled by the title of this article. It is called “Crowdsourcing Social Media for Military Operations” but it really isn’t about that. It is a report of a survey of almost 800 Turkers and which social media they use.
Almost all (93.1%) use Facebook, about 60% use Twitter, and all the way down the list until we learn about 12% use Yahoo Answers, which I’ve never even heard of. Interestingly, Snapchat (the kids’ choice) was left off the list.
The study makes some connections to military operations but it really is more of a summary of how Turkers use social media. It isn’t a great article, by any means (no stats among other things) but an interesting snapshot of a community.
