While social media sites are popular with teens and young adults, a large percentage of the new social media audience will be older, says eMarketer. As of 2010, 60 percent of the internet users in the 35 to 44 age group use social media. (By 2014, more than 70 percent will visit social media sites).
The dramatic increase in the number of births from 1946 to 1964 (1947 to 1966 in Canada and 1946-1961 in Australia) is called the Baby Boom.
But because the youngest boomer is 47, and the highest percentage of social media users are now teen - 44, then the advent of Facebook, etc. was not due to the boomer generation.
I agree with most of the rant, but it's always a good idea to get the facts beforehand... I'm in that boomer generation, and I know anything put into the ether that can be printed or copied is evidence, available to be used aginst me in ways I have not even begun to imagine.... and, as others already iterated, what an enormous waste of time.
