Out of the 30% of U.S. adults who use Facebook as source of news, nearly 80% of these adults just happen to stumble upon the news while on the site for other reasons. Regardless of whether or not finding this news is intentional, it seems like Facebook is helping adults to stay informed on issues in the news.
