According to this blog that reported on some research done by YouGov (of which I can find no trace).
39% of women over 55+ have downloaded one or more app on their smart-phone. This trend is similar in the US. Facebook’s own statistics show that there are almost twice as many women over 55 on Facebook as there are men of the same age. Perhaps most surprising of all, there are now more women over 55 on Facebook than there are teenagers. (Source: Inside Facebook Feb 2009)
The report containing this information was created by Lady Geek that ran an online survey a sample of 16,810 smart-phone owners in Feb 2010.
For some reason Lady Geek’s web site doesn’t like my browser. Maybe it will like yours.
