Social Networking: see how YOU fit in the data


Do you have a profile on FaceBook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Yahoo, YouTube, Classmates?

I fall into an “older” demographic, so I found it interesting to read the results of a very recent (Dec.2008) “tracking survey” on adults using social networking sites. (Hey, guyz, who are you callin’ an adult!?) 

“The share of adult internet users who have a profile on an online social network site has more than quadrupled in the past four years — from 8% in 2005 to 35% now.”

PEW/Internet report on Adults and Social Network Websites:

For a quick-look, I’m attaching a copy of their table of data from page 5 of that report.

For my age, I fit in a relatively small 10% group. Yay for me!

(Brian M, sorry, they don’t have stats on addictive behavior at these sites. But they do say that “more than one third (37%) visit their profile daily.”)
