Turns out, not many people change their minds because of something they see on social media

A recent study from the Pew Research Center reveals that exposure to opposing views on social media has not caused most Americans to change their own stance on issues in the past year. Just 14 percent of the 4,594 US adults surveyed between May 29 and June 11 said they have changed their views about a political or social issue in the past year due to something they saw on social media.

Very interesting to see this research but I guess it's not surprising if we think that most of us tend to stay in a filter bubble – especially on Twitter!
