Social media are an important factor in news but are far from the leading source of information for digital users, according to a Pew Research Center survey. Of respondents, 9% said they "very often" follow news on Facebook or Twitter, while at least a quarter said they regularly use search, Web or application aggregators or directly visit news websites. More broadly, the survey found reduced revenue for all news sources despite evidence that news is becoming a more integral part of people's lives.
