Poll: Age Demographics of Twitter Users

For those who still think social networking is for kids, the data says otherwise. And, for those who insist that my Twitter habit is silly and an attempt to make myself feel younger, you’re wrong too!

The original post for this (with much prettier graphics) can be found at http://blog.thebusybrain.com/poll-age-demographics-of-twitter-users/564.

While tweeting a thought I had moments ago about why it seems that Twitter is mostly Adult / Older aged users I had the idea to publish a poll to get a general understanding as to the actual average Age of Twitter users!

Please be honest, and select your age bracket in the poll below! Of course I urge you to tell others so we can make this poll as acurate and useful as possible! Thank you for participating, and passing the word! RETWEET!

If you are a Twitter user, what is your age bracket?

30 – 39 years (32%, 512 Votes)
20 – 29 years (28%, 455 Votes)
40 – 49 years (21%, 343 Votes)
50 – 59 years (10%, 161 Votes)
16 – 19 years (5%, 73 Votes)
60 – 69 years (2%, 25 Votes)
10 – 15 years (1%, 16 Votes)
80+ years (0%, 7 Votes)

Best Practices in Internet Ministry

I dislike the term ‘best practices.’ My experience is that most best practices, aren’t. But, there are always exceptions. Dave Bourgeois, Associate Professor of Information Systems at Biola University recently presented a workshop for the Center for Congregations, “God in the Tubes: Developing an Internet Strategy for Your Congregation.” Dave  did some really interesting research on congregations and related non-profits who use the internet as part of their work. I like Dave’s research because it affirms many things I’ve been saying! Here’s a sampling:

  • Only 36% of the respondents felt their Internet ministry was successful
  • 64% of organizations with an annual budget >$10,000 reported success vs 30% or less with budgets under $1000
  • Organizations that integated outside services like Flickr and Youtube reported up to 45% more success than those that didn’t
  • Organizations that integrated social networking tools… Facebook, Twitter, blogs, etc. reported 24% more success than those that didn’t
  • Organizations who had volunteers build the web site reported success 16% less often than those who did not (that’s a -16% success rate)
  • Collecting data or research in preparation for developing a web ministry, 52% of organizations that answered “yes” reported success, compared to 26% success for those who reported “no”

Check out the rest of Dave’s best practice data at http://genesys11.com/fileadmin/user_upload/genesys11-InternetMinistryBestPractices.pdf. For more information on Dave and his research check out http://godinthetubes.com.

Web X.X

I’m attending a conference on Web 2.0. Earlier this year I posted an article on Cyberculture that included a great video clip from Michael Wesch of Kansas State University. After nearly 10 hours of conference, Wesch’s 4 minute video clip makes more sense than anything I’ve heard. Sometimes, simple is just better?!
