  • Great graphics but as everyone should know by now, age statistics for websites are very inaccurate.  While Facebook might be up there closer to the truth because they really go for the real you, there are countless people who make accounts to appear older or even younger on the Internet to appeal to a different group.  Not to mention the countless people who register multiple accounts for various reasons on sites which skews the statistics even more.  On top of that, most of these companies would not reveal this data, especially to a rival like Google where the age demographic is listing as its source, compiled by pingdom, an up-time monitoring service, which has nothing to do with the data listed.
