Facebook was created by a college student.
I read a report the other day that said the age group 26-44 far surpassed the 18-25 age group. That makes sense - the kid that created it has aged a bit, and the kids that grew up on Facebook have gotten a little older.
The report said that Facebook is experiencing tremendous growth among users in the age group 35-65, with the fastest growing portion of that being women, 55 years and older. I am not even gonna touch that.
Yes, I’ve recently joined FB myself. One of the things I love is being a bigger part of my nephews' lives and popping remarks back and forth with them. It’s been cool to catch up with some of my friends from high school and those from the various and sundry walks of my life. I don’t accept friend requests or suggestions from those I really don't know. And it's really sweet when your sons’ friends want you to be their friend. I like watching them go through life, and you can do that with FB. As to all the games and stuff like that, I just don't go there. I don't have time. I don’t play Farm, because everyone I know that does gets hooked and I never hear from them again. (Don't be hatin'!) I don't join the causes...though they're worthy, it's all I can do to FB the little bit I do. And I'm not sure joining causes on Facebook really helps the causes, huh? I don't do the bling - I don't in real life, so why should I in the virtual world? I have participated in the "Relative" thing, but now I'm getting relative requests from people that make me wonder just how many families I have that my parents didn't tell me about. Like...does my family tree really fork?
In another completely unrelated (yet unsubstantiated) report, I read that 40-something is the new 18.
