Are Facebook users getting older on average? Very much so, according to a recent study from digital agency iStrategyLabs, which found that the number of teens (aged 13 through 17) was down 25.3 percent when compared with its 2011 report, while total users 55 and older were up 80.4 percent during the same time period.
iStrategyLabs also found that San Francisco experienced the largest growth among major metropolitan areas in the 55-plus demographic, at 148.6 percent, while Houston finished at the bottom of that list, at just 23.8 percent.
The agency also compared traits of the two age groups in the chart below.
