Religion and Social Media


A 2012 Survey found that:

  • 13% had downloaded a podcast of a sermon or listened to a sermon online.
  • 20% used Facebook several times a day, but 33% never used it.
  • Among Americans who use Facebook, half (50 percent) say they do not describe their religious beliefs at all on their Facebook profile. One-in-five (20 percent) of Americans say that their religious identity on Facebook is “Christian”, while 9 percent identify as Catholic, 8 percent identify as another Protestant denomination, 6 percent identify as “something else”, and 4 percent identify as atheist, agnostic, or nothing in particular.

Sample size: 1,026 and a margin of error of ±3.5%
