The main point that this article is trying to present is the rate and changes of the use of social media by young adults. The article also brings up points that more adults and young adults use social media then years prior. Then main difference between the two groups is the "life span" of their profiles and which websites are used. For example, "Young profile owners are much more likely to maintain a profile on MySpace (66% of young profile owners do so, compared with just 36% of those thirty and older)" (292).
