Are Facebook users more politically engaged?

The Pew Internet & American Life Project has released a new report, Social networking sites and our lives: How people's trust, personal relationships, and civic and political involvement are connected to their use of social networking sites and other technologies.

The report looks at a variety of correlations between social media and the way we live our lives, including political and civic engagement.  So are Facebook users more politically engaged?  According to Pew, the answer is "yes," which means state leaders would be wise to connect with them.  For the full report, including analysis of LinkedIn and Myspace users, click here.
