Here are some interesting facts of Facebook users in the United States:
# of people aged 13-17:
# of people aged 33-77:
(very small difference)
# people aged 18-22:
# people aged 28-32:
(Facebook is still dominated by college-aged co-eds)
You should have slept on this post before publishing. You might have avoided making yourself look bitter and negative about the entire 18-22 demographic You might have done a little more research and noticed they’ve actually got over double the US Internet average of 11-17 users, making them much more popular with teens than “co-eds” in the US relative to overall activity/demographic breakdowns. Then again, you probably knew that and it didn’t fit your agenda…
Here in Australia we don’t understand the term “college-aged co-eds” (I doubt they would in the UK either). Does it mean “school kids”?
A couple more comments;
I bet a big chunk of the 13-17 bracket are kids under 13 who lie about their age. In fact they could be represented in all age groups. My kids are 10 & 11 and they routinely make up birthdates to register on all sorts of web sites (I do keep an eye on what they’re up to!).
What happened to 23-27 year olds?
I can’t help wondering how many people in the 33-77 bracket registered to see what all the fuss was about and never used Facebook again.
Here in Australia Facebook is emerging as a major source of cyber bullying. Is this nasty side of Facebook also a feature in the US?
One Facebok phenomenon I find amazing is how many people use the real name. At the very least you would think school kids would use their nicknames. Although I guess if they did they might end up with only 5 “freinds” instead of 500 😉
I would like to know where you find this information? Where are your sources and references? I’m doing a paper on Facebook, but cannot find such (valid) facts and statistics anywhere.. Please help! 🙂
