ILA 3: Popularity of Social Media Among Boys

I chose a bar graph to depict the data since it is the clearest way to present the data. A line plot would not make sense as we aren’t depicting a change over the course of certain time period. A scatter plot would not fit the data since we are not necessarily trying to find a relationship between data points. I designed my graph to feature the different age group of boys who do or do not use different kinds of social media. I chose to differentiate the different answers and age groups through different colors. This differentiation allows the viewer to easily discern the different data and refer to the legend if need be. I could this interpret the most boys from each age group use Facebook versus Twitter. An argument that one can make with this data is that most teen boys prefer to use Facebook for social media over Twitter.
