It's not a big surprise that a majority of millennials (68 percent) get their news from social media. But someone should tell the major news outlets
that—even in the age of social media—millennials care about more than speed when it comes to obtaining information.
Almost 70 percent of millennials would rather be the last to know the news than receive inaccurate information.
recently conducted a study of 500 millennials aged 14-30 to find out how they get their news and whether they trust it. It then listed the results in an infographic.
Here are some of the findings:
Sixty-six percent of millennials are not confident the news they receive is accurate.
Seventy percent of millennials would like to be informed by reporters who are older than them, rather than someone the same age.
The top three places millennials get their news from are social media (68 percent), word of mouth (63 percent) and news websites (62 percent).
