A new chart has been released showing how different generations are using social media. First, the graphic:
Now, a lot of this seems to be not all that surprising, such as the older you get, the less likely you are to participate in social media. After all, most senior citizens probably would freely admit that they do not “get” or “understand” its purpose, so they simply neglect to use it.
Though, perhaps one small surprise is with the age group 12-17 having a 34 percent rate of “inactives”. Perhaps its the younger individuals skewing the numbers higher–after all, it is fairly likely that parents of these younger children would try to limit or curb their social networking opportunities. Or, perhaps there is some other trend out there that we old fogeys don’t see or understand ourselves on the horizon?
Nonetheless, the graphic is an interesting one to look at and quantify how exactly different age groups are using social media.
