    I think my fundamental concern with this chart is that Social Media is considered it’s own freestanding entity & thus penalized for not carrying the same weight, when in reality it is merely a channel (or series of channels) within the internet. Email, is also unfairly penalized above in the same way. It is kind of like asking cable tv users how difficult it would be to give up HBO. Certainly, HBO would upset many, but it’s absence would not render their Television useless as there would be many other avenues for content. I also would like to know what percent of the internet users surveyed actively use Social Media, perhaps it would have been cleaner to survey the % of current Social Media users, versus the % of Internet users, as many who use the internet do not participate in Social Media and could careless if it didn’t exist.
