Facebook Reckons the World Ends at 64

futurelab default header

This article points out that Facebook’s demographic targeting ends at 64 years old – after that you are history.

This got me thinking. I wonder how many people in the UK are on Facebook aged 50-64.

If you can believe the results of the web site then a couple of million – all of them checking on what is happening to their kids and grandchildren?

I cannot get too upset about Facebook thinking the world ends at 64. It would be interesting to know how many 65+ year olds have a profile. One thing is certain. Not enough to ever make it worth using Facebook a useful tool for targeting them.
