And I was invited to speak on a panel about the midterms and transatlantic trade.

Other panelists were a former Republican and head of Public Affairs at a big firm in Stockholm and a lobbyist from Capitol Hill. The moderator is a foreign correspondent with TT.

It was the first time I was presented with flowers which is a Swedish tradition. The last time I spoke was at a Democrats Abroad event in Gothenburg and I was given a t-shirt I wanted. The first time I spoke at a Democrats Abroad event in Gothenburg I was given a party mascot. Both were perfect for me. I am embracing the Swedish and appreciating the American ways of doing things.

And always the best thing about attending AmCham Sweden events is the opportunity to network, network, network. Regardless of the 2018 US Midterm election results AmCham Sweden will be here to ensure that cooperation among US and Swedish businesses will thrive.

Social Media Fact Sheet – Pew Research

Today around seven-in-ten Americans use social media to connect with one another, engage with news content, share information and entertain themselves. Explore the patterns and trends shaping the social media landscape over the past decade below.

Social media use over time

When Pew Research Center began tracking social media adoption in 2005, just 5% of American adults used at least one of these platforms. By 2011 that share had risen to half of all Americans, and today 69% of the public uses some type of social media.

As more Americans have adopted social media, the social media user base has also grown more representative of the broader population. Young adults were among the earliest social media adopters and continue to use these sites at high levels, but usage by older adults has increased in recent years.

Which social media platforms are most popular

Facebook is the most-widely used of the major social media platforms, and its user base is most broadly representative of the population as a whole. Smaller shares of Americans use sites such as Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and LinkedIn.
