Irish people are among the highest users of social media in the European Union.

New statistics show that in the 16 to 24-year age group, the participation rate is 89 per cent, or almost nine out of every ten people.

The figures from Eurostat show that in the age bracket 16-74, we are 11th out of 27 member States for engaging in digital networks.

Grace Bolton of the European Commission office in Dublin says Irish people are way ahead of most of our European counterparts.
