Word of Mouth Daily – November 7, 2011

Age is Just a Number to Facebook Users

A July 2011 survey conducted by Forrester Research of nearly 60,000 adults in the US and Canada found no generational limits on Facebook. There was no significant difference in age between Facebook users. Those in the 18-22 age group were just as likely to have a Facebook account as those 67+ years old.

This contrasts the two trailing social networking sites, LinkedIn and Twitter. Among LinkedIn users, the bulk of users are in the 23-45 year old range. Twitter’s user population is heavily stacked with Generation Z and Y – those 18-22 and 23-31 years old, respectively. Twitter users older than that drop off steadily afterward.

Read Forrester’s own commentary for further insights and data here.

The survey was completed prior to the public launch of the Google+ social networking site.

The main takeaway from this report is that your business must have a mix of social options to reach the spectrum of potential consumers. Further, your message should match the audience on each platform. Need a hand with that? Just ask, and Hamptons Creative Group will help you explore your options.
