The bar chart compares the usage of social networking sites by Canadians in two years, 2014 and 2015. It divides the people into six categories, determined by the number of these sites that they used, ranging from not using any to using one, two, three, four and five sites. The units of measure are percentages.

2.

It is clear that (unnecessary verbiage) there was an upward trend (wrong word. Trends are seen on line graphs, not bar charts with only two data points.) in the proportion of internet users (inaccurate - the instructions do not say these were only internet users. Don't write things that are not in the data provided.) using more than one site, which saw (avoid using see, experience, witness) the highest proportion in Canada in the year of 2014 and 2015.

In 2014, there was 22 percent of internet users did not use social networking sites while the figure (wrong word. ) for one site group was 36 percent. In the following year, no sites category saw a small decline by one percent of internet users, whereas the porportion of users in one site group fell significantly from 36 percent to 28 percent.

The bar chart indicates the proportion of social media websites that are utilized by Canadians in the years 2014 and 2015.

Overall, the most majority of people in Canada used one site whereas only a minority had five social networking accounts in either of the years.

First and foremost, in 2014, one site users represented the highest percentage compared to other categories, accounting for 36%. Next, although it plummeted up to between 25 and 30 percent, it also headed the list in the year 2015. Besides, there was a difference between 2014 and 2015 about 1% in both no sites and two sites groups with more in 2014 in the former category at 22% while the figure of 2015 was bigger for the ladder (24%).

In contrast, Internet users with more than two sites all witnessed the gradual growth with a slight climb from 12% in 2014 to 16% in 2015 for people visited three sites. Moreover, people with four social networking sites stood up at 5% in 2014 but it then increased by 3% one year later while the percentage of the latest group was just under 5%.
