36% of online Democrats, 21% of Republicans and 28% of independents have a profile on a social networking site

36% of online Democrats have a profile on a social networking site, significantly greater than the comparable figures for both Republicans (21%) and independents (28%), according to Pew Internet Project. Interestingly, despite the pronounced age differences between Obama and Clinton partisans, the percentage of internet users in each group who have a social networking profile are within the margin of error for this survey (38% of online Obama supporters and 31% of online Clinton supporters have a social networking profile).
