Growing number of people 50+ use social media

We tend to think the people on Facebook are young, college-aged and writing about last night's party.  Those people are indeed there.  But, there's another demographic increasingly using social networking sites. A new report from the Pew Internet & American Life Project shows the number of internet users 50 and older using social media has nearly doubled since last year. Same story for the number of internet users 65 and older.

This really puts in perspective something one of our recent guests John Troyer brought up in a story on Twitter, Facebook and death.
