Dramatic increase in social network usage among older adults

Friday, August 27th, 2010

Nearly half of adults aged 50-64 and over a quarter of those aged 65+ are using social networking tools such as Facebook and Twitter, according to a study just released by Pew Internet entitled Older Adults and Social Media.

For the 50-64 crowd, usage grew 88% over the past year and 100% for people 65+ compared to only 13% for users aged 18-29, though to be fair, that’s because the younger ones had adopted social media earlier.

Facebook is a great way of keeping in touch with old friends and new and Twitter is a good way to keep up on all your interests. That’s why you can find LifeStation on both of these services:
