Le bilan démographique des 8 millions de Québécois. Les médias sociaux gagnent en popularité auprès des plus de 50 ans. Mené par la firme Harris-Décima pour le compte de La Presse Canadienne, le sondage indique que 68 pour cent des personnes interrogées ont utilisé les médias sociaux en 2011 comparativement à 57 pour cent deux ans plus tôt.
La principale différence entre les deux périodes réside dans le nombre beaucoup plus important de personnes âgées de 50 ans et plus à avoir pris le virage Web 2.0. En 2009, seulement 39 pour cent d'entre elles étaient inscrites à un ou plusieurs médias sociaux contre 57 pour cent en 2011. Selon Mike Leahy, vice-président d'Harris-Décima, cette hausse s'explique par le fait que les Canadiens plus âgés sont davantage à l'aise avec Internet et qu'ils passent probablement par les médias sociaux pour communiquer avec les plus jeunes.
