Think you know technology? Pew Research’s Internet Project reveals a lot about our “Web IQ”


If you are a die-hard mobile user, chances are you know that the first iPhone came out in 2007, and that Twitter has a 140 character limit. That also means you likely understand the use of “hashtags,” formerly known as “pound” symbols.

We are fairly certain our readership knows that a megabyte is bigger than a kilobyte, and could also pic Bill Gates or Sheryl Sandberg out of a line-up. However, our regular readers would also not be surprised to know that they are the exception.

Pew Research conducted a survey of 1,066 adults and gauged their knowledge across a number of those topics, and others. Younger demographics scored higher, on average, but the median still followed the classic “bell curve” with most respondents answering in the middle third.

To see how you measure up, you can take the survey too. Just click on the source link below. We know you will not cheat, so tell us your score.
