Growing Number of Americans Turning to TikTok for News, Research Finds

The Epoch Times

A growing number of TikTok users now get their news from the video-sharing app, with almost a third of adults between 18 and 29 regularly using the platform for news while consumption of news across other social media sites has declined, according to new research published Nov. 15.

According to the survey data by Pew Research, in just three years, the share of U.S. adults who say they regularly get news from Chinese-owned TikTok has more than quadrupled, rising from just 3 percent in 2020 to 14 percent in 2023.

Pew Research surveyed 8,842 adults from Sept. 25 to Oct. 1, 2023, via self-administered web surveys. The data has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 1.6 percentage points.
