When it comes to educational level, LinkedIn stands out with a almost half of its users having a bachelors degree or more – hardly surprising for a social network aimed at professionals. Facebook and MySapce on the other hand have a percentage of users having a high school diploma or less. One might be tempted to think that this may be because of a large number of teenage users on Facebook and MySpace. The age distribution chart shows that this is indeed the case with MySpace, but not Facebook. Majority of Facebook’s population is between 25-55 years of age, as is the case with all other social networks.
