Interesting, apparently about half of the fediverse are people in their 40s and 50s.

To this extent I'm really interested to know how the age breakdown of people on the #Fediverse. On one hand it would seem to make sense to me that ...

@freemo near 85 percent of the users in that poll are between 26 and 60. The 41-60 group covers the widest range of expected ages, 26-40 contains 25% fewer possible ages, so it’s not surprising that it’s a bit smaller. That being said, it wouldn’t surprise me if the bird site also has an aging demographic. The kids today have their own preferences for social media.

@unamanic There are significantly fewer people in the world between 40 and 60 than there is between 26 and 40.. so this might even things out a bit. We would have to normalize for the population if you really wanted accurate numbers WRT how exceptional the age distribution is.

@freemo we’d also need more granular data. The rise of the Gram coincided with the teen years for most of the 20 somethings. My guess is that a disproportionate amount of the 26-40 group are in their mid to late 30s.
