View Full Version : Women over 55 flocking to Facebook

04-13-2009, 10:46 AM
There are now about 1.5 million female users older than 55 on the site, the group says -- roughly a 550 percent increase over six months ago. By comparison, membership among people younger than 25 grew by less than 20 percent over the same period, Inside Facebook says.

Facebook now says it has 200 million users (http://blog.facebook.com/blog.php?post=72353897130), making its user base larger than the populations of all the world's countries except China, India, the United States and Indonesia. Such a vast presence, coupled with news media buzz about all social media, has pushed online social networking to a "tipping point," said Amanda Lenhart, a senior research specialist at the Pew Internet & American Life Project.

I don't get the hype behind facebook. I've always thought Myspace is much better.

I tried Myspace and was thoroughly disappointed. I always heard my friends talking about it so I decided to try it out and it baffled me that people would spend hours at night just refreshing it.

Maybe we should make sure they come to FH... much more entertaining in my opinion.

I've always liked Facebook more.

As to the old people on there..my friend was just bitching to me about how al of his mother's friends were adding him as a friend on there.
