"About [2/3] of Facebook’s (FB) users are now over 35. The average age of a Facebook user has climbed to 41. The average age of a Facebook employee is 31." Thus writes Quartz's Leo Mirani in a surreal recap of the company's 2013 shareholder meeting that highlights the disconnect between the social networking giant and many of its shareholders. One investor told Mark Zuckerberg he "invested blindly" in Facebook because "my family is a big fan of yours." He earlier expressed concerns about all the "hackers" at the company (Zuck responded by explaining his definition of a hacker).

    Well that is certainly above the median age of the population at large in most countries.

    Naturally. There aren't too many 3-year-olds with Facebook accounts :).

    The age average is heavily skewed, like Eric said above.

     

    Also, a shareholder is not happy because they've hired hackers? That gave me a laugh.

    So what does this have to do with the disconnect between shareholders age and users age? I don't understand (me--shareholder). I like the price of FB and am accumulating.

    Give it a little time. Nothing like this has been created in the history of the world.

    older average age equals more disposable income. Be patient....
