Social Seniors 5x More Likely to use #Facebook than #Twitter


More than half of online adults in the U.S. aged 65 or over are now using Facebook, reveals a new study.

This compares to just 10 percent of seniors who are using Twitter.

Additionally, 63 percent of U.S. online adults aged 50-64 are also active on Facebook — more than five times that of Twitter (12 percent).

Twitter’s strongest demographic is the 18-29 age group, but it’s still dwarfed by Facebook and also Instagram in this vertical.
