Ages: Social Networks

Ages of social network users reviews how the various social networks (Bebo, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc) break down in terms of age categories. Of the 19 services covered, the 35-44 age group is tops in 11. While this fits into the “interesting” category. I’d like to see better data on the online activities of different age groups (Pew did a study of internet activities in general, not confined to social networks), which age groups show the fastest growth in participation, how online habits differ between novice and experienced users of the service, and perspectives of privacy/security by different age groups.
