Top Social Network Age Distributions

Rapleaf, a company which regularly produces studies on social networks, has released a new one about the age distribution of users on MySpace, Facebook, Flickr and LinkedIn. Here are some highlights of that study:

– 120 million social network profiles (total) were found, with each person averaging 2-3 social networks

– Women and the 14-24 year old demographic are more likely to use Myspace and Facebook than other demographics (the 14-24 year old demographic represents 65.5% and 66.25% of total users respectively)

– Men and the 25-34 year old demographic are more likely to use LinkedIn and Flickr than other demographics (the 25-34 year old demographic represents 51.0% and 38.1% of total users respectively)

It’s interesting to see that the age distributions are all heavily skewed toward a younger demographic. LinkedIn has the oldest demographic overall but the most popular age group is those members between the ages of 25 and 34.
