The Largest Segment of New Facebook Users: Moms.

Spent most of today researching social media statistics.  I mean, I know social media isn’t something just the “young people” are using to share rock n’ roll videos/post pictures of tattoos/invite other young people to raging parties.  But it’s still shocking to me to discover that the fastest growing segment on Facebook is 55-65 year old women.

Women in their fifties?

That’s like, young people’s moms.  That’s also a segment of the population with considerable buying power and a substantial disposable income.  Social media isn’t just for college kids anymore.

What does this tell us? Well, Facebook is not a fad. Welcome to a new way of life.
