The chart below gives information about the number of social networking sites people used in Canada in 2014 and 2015. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.
The bar chart shows the number of social networking sites visited by internet users in Canada in 2014 and 2015. We can see from the data that, in general, there was a growing tendency to use more than one site.
Although just over one-fifth of internet users did not use any social networking sites in either of the years, the proportion in this category decreased from 22 percent in 2014 to 21 percent in 2015. In both years, the highest proportion of users in any group fell into the ‘One site’ category. However, this group declined sharply from 36 percent in 2014 to 28 percent in 2015.
In contrast, the reported numbers using two sites, three sites, four sites, and five sites grew over the analyzed period. In both years, the proportion of internet users fell as social networking sites increased, with only 2 percent using five sites in 2014 compared to 4 percent in 2015.
Sample Answer 2
The bar charts represent the percentage of people in Canada using multiple social networking sites for two years, including 2014 and 2015.
Overall, about one-fifth of people living in Canada use no social networking sites. In contrast, approximately 30% of Canadians of the total population used one social networking site in the year 2014 and 2015.
The percentage of people using no social sites decreased insignificantly in 2015. However, 36% of Canadians used on social networking sites in 2014, and the number decreased in 2015, making approximately one-third of the total population.
In 2014, 23% of people used two sites for social networking, which increased slightly in 2015, making up about one-fourth of the total population. The number of people using three sites increased by 4% in 2015, constituting 16%. Very few people used four sites in 2014 for social networking, which slightly increased in 2015, making only 8%. Only 2% of Canadians used five sites for social networking, which increased by only 2% in 2015.
Sample Answer 3
The bar graph illustrates data from multiple social networking site users in Canada for two years, including 2014 and 2015.
Overall, it is clearly understood that approximately one-fifth of the total population does not use any site, whereas one-third of people use only a single place.
Looking at the details shown in the graph, the percentage of single-site users was slightly more than one-third of total users in 2014, and it decreased to 28% in 2015. However, the number of people using no social networking site decreased from 22% to 21%.
In 2014, 23% of people used two social networking sites, which increased in 2015 up to a quarter of the total population. The number of people who used three social networking sites increased by 4% in 2015, which was 16%. One in twenty people used four sites in 2014, which grew in 2015 and goes to 8%. Very few people used five areas for social networking in 2014, and only 4% of people were employed in 2015, with an increment of 2%.
Sample Answer 4
The bar charts represent the percentage of people in Canada who used multiple social networking sites for two years, including 2014 and 2015.
Overall, about one-fifth of Canadians in Canada used no social networking sites, whereas Canadians who used a single social networking site in the years were the highest. The percentage of people using five sites and four sites was very less in proportion.
The percentage of people using more social networking sites displayed a marginal increase when comparing 2014 to 2015. The number of people using two, three, four, and five areas increased from 23 to 24, 12 to 16, 5 to 8, and 2 to 4 percentages, respectively, when compared.
The percentage of people using none of the social networking sites decreased slightly in 2015. It fell from 22% to 21%. While a bigger drop was witnessed in the number of people using a single social networking site. While it registered the highest percentage of 36% in 2014, it dropped to 28% in 2015. Although there was a fall, this was still the highest percentage in 2015.
