While some say Facebook is loosing younger users, those over 65 are fastest-rising group on Facebook, according to a new report.
The Pew Center for Internet and American Life released a report Monday that showed the group on Facebook showing the strongest growth were users over 65 years old. The report, which studied 1,801 adults from August to September 2013, said that 45 percent of American elderly who use the Internet are on Facebook, up from 35 percent last year. In comparison, 84 percent of teens using the Internet are on Facebook, the same number as last year.
There has been concern that Facebook's slow growth among teens may hamper its profitability, but the report's authors aren't as concerned with the slowing of growth.
