Well, iStrategyLabs, has published new demographics on Facebook and surprisingly, the age group you thought would be leading the pack isn’t.
Here are some key stats from their demographic findings:
- In 6 months, Jan. 4, 2009 – July 4, 2009, the United States has seen a 70.8% growth in Facebook users.
- 55+ year olds had an unprecedented growth of 513.7%
- The number of Facebook users claiming to be from Atlanta, Ga. grew 142.4%
- The number of High School users dropped 16.5% and College student use dropped 21.7%
Do these stats prove the myth that once parents started “writing on walls” that their kids stopped and migrated to Twitter? We’ll know soon enough.
What are your thoughts?
