Although of 21 percent of Slovaks visit a social network every day an equal number of persons, mostly pensioners, never do so. TASR also wrote that there was a relative lack of participation by households with a monthly income under €700 and by people with lower levels of education.

The survey involved a representative sample of 1,135 Slovaks age 14 years and older.
