Quartz: Global Executives Study (Quartz)

If you were wondering where the world’s smartest, busiest people get their news, look no further. Quartz conducted a survey of 1,357 executives from around the world to find out how they get news, why they share content, and their feelings toward advertising. The study found that mornings are the most popular time for executives to consume news, and that they are most likely to get news from e-mail newsletters. LinkedIn was discovered to be the most used social media platform, while Twitter is used most intentionally to get news. Long-form articles and content covering the topics of business, global affairs, and politics were found to be the most shared.
