In the wish-you-didn’t-know category, young adults ages 18-24 are twice as likely (40%) to use social media in the bathroom, compared with the all social-media users.

Story
Tagline
Former syndicated columnist. Studied social media at Stanford. Met Johnny Cash.
Introduction
A former syndicated newspaper columnist, I made the jump to social media in 2008. I studied at Facebook and Twitter on a fully paid Knight Fellowship to Stanford in 2008-2009. I led social media for Lowe's Home Improvement, a Fortune 50 company, from 2009-2011, twice making our Facebook page among the fastest growing on all of Facebook. I currently work as a consultant for companies large and small. See my blog, here.
