Default How Old Is The Average Facebook User?


I read last night that the average Facebook user is 38 years of age. Initially, I almost fell over as I assumed it would be much lower.

We better take more notice to what we post as our parents could be watching us!!

Hi Jo,

I found these stats on quantcast for Facebook:

It gives you stats on age ranges, number of children, education and income levels and more.

They're supposedly just estimates, but when I plug in my own sites they seem to be pretty accurate.

I also read the same info and see nothing strange in it as Facebook is a professional network and people aged 30-40 can be considered adult enough. There are many other social media sites just for pleasure, the average age there is younger.

While I don't know the average age, I know the fastest growing segment is 40-60 year olds. I'd like a system where you could tag a photo as viewable only by people under a certain age...
