How do millennials get their news? Well, according to a new Ypulse study, more than two-thirds (68 percent) of 14-30 year-olds ride the information curve on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, which ranked first as a news source ahead of word of mouth (63 percent), news websites (62 percent) and television (55 percent).
Overall, social media ranked second as a primary source of news (behind news websites). However, 66 percent are not confident that the news they receive from any source is accurate, and 67 percent would rather be the last to know so long as the information was true.
