    Something is wrong with the percentages in the Current Enrollment section of 2010. They add up to well over 100%. Both Alumni and Unknown are significantly lower (31.4% and 57.5%, respectively). The other two are wrong as well.

  11. Thanks for providing this information. I especially find it interesting about the increase in social media use with the aging demographics. One of the main misconceptions that I deal with small business owners and professionals is the belief that only twenty-somethings and younger use social media which is clearly not the case.

  22. Dave says:

    While it’s interesting to see the 35-54 demo has the largest concentration in users, it’s important to note that’s also a very large age range. 18-24 is only a 6 year span, yet represents 25% of users. 35-54 is a 19 year span with slightly more 29%. Would also be important to know usage rates and not merely sign-ups. Before reading into the growth too much it would be good to know how many of the fast growing 55+ bracket are using the service with any significant frequency.

  24. Jim says:

    Just wondering if there anywhere else on the web or any other way where these stats can be independently verified? The source remains a bit suspect when it comes from the same people who are actively seeking to promote Facebook.

  25. @Jim who could possibly have better data related to Facebook than Facebook itself?

  26. Jim says:

    Well if you seriously want an answer, try Quantcast for starters.

    Jim please see the conversation above about quantcast. As a rule of thumb I trust data “closest to the source” rather than survey/3rd party data.

    What explains the dip in the college enrollments? I feel like almost every student on our college campus has a Facebook acocunt.

  35. Phil Goodman says:

    One of the comments by Dave brings up a valid point. 18 to 24 is 6 years and 35-54 is 19 years. When will everyone get it through their head that this kind of research is not Genergraphically correct. If you want to be accurate doing this kind of research you need to stop doing demographics and start doing Genergraphics which is the international language of marketing.

    The 35 to 54 age group is made up of Boomers and Gen-Xers which have two different mind-sets. How can you hit the target? Go to http://www.genergraphics.com and see for yourself. Demographics is the ruination of marketing. Stop counting numbers and start counting generational mind-sets.

    Hi-

    I know that for the fan page that I created on Facebook, I get weekly updates of how many folks joined, etc. but is there a way on Facebook to export the demographics (based on the profiles) of those who “like” a page? I think it would be interesting to see how our fan base on Facebook compares to the actual demographics of our members. I work with the social media for a non-profit teachers’ association. :)
