Who is the main reader of TalTech news?
While more than half of the readers and visitors of the Estonian-language online news are in a fairly comprehensive age group, i.e. 25–54 years old, it is gratifying that most or almost a quarter (24.4%) are young people aged 25–34. No other age group shows this high level of interest in our news.
More than half or 64% of news readers are located in Tallinn, but there are also many readers in Tartu and Pärnu, and even Helsinki is in the top ten.
While a few years ago university information was often read from a computer, now a significant change can be seen – more than half of the news readers use a mobile phone to read. And as many as 21% of news readers reach our website via Facebook if they notice an interesting news link there.
