Facebook’s popularity is spreading to an older audience. According to a new study, the largest group of Facebook users are now 35-54, accounting for 28% of all U.S. users. 24-32 year users follow closely behind, representing 25.2% of users.
More interesting is how quickly older users have taken interest in Facebook. The surge in interest has been rapid. Since January, new users in the 35-54 age group joined in on the Facebook trend, increasing 190%. More astounding was the growth in new users age 55+–that population grew 590%!! By contrast, the youngest group (18-24), increased only by 4.8% since January.
Also interesting was the decrease in the 18-24 group’s overall Facebook presence. They now account for only 25.1% of users, which is a decrease of 40.8% since January.
