* The original survey question was: "I'd now like to ask you some questions about social media - so using websites or apps like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat and YouTube. Do you have a social media profile or account on any sites or apps?" single coded.
** Results for 2016 are weighted. Respondent numbers for previous years are as follows: n (2010) = 1,489; n (2011) = 1,369; n (2012) = 1,381; n (2013) = 1,272; n (2014) = 1,609; n (2015) = 1,458.
Data for years previous to 2013 were published earlier by the source.
The source indicates that, "The way in which the question was asked of adults was amended between 2012 and 2014, which could account for some of the differences shown."
