As Facebook turned 10, Pew researchers took the opportunity to find out the type of users the social networking giant has seen in the last decade making it what it is today.


The Pew Research Center found that Facebook is used by 57 percent of all adults while 73 percent of ages from 12-17 years.

According to Tech Crunch, the study found that adult Facebook usage is "intensifying", with 64 percent of Facebook users visiting the site on a daily basis, up from 51 percent in 2010.

It was reported in October that Facebook was loosing out on its most crucial 'teen' audience, however, the latest data pointed that usage among teens remains "high".

The study also found that half of all adult Facebook users have more than 200 friends in their network, while 39 percent have between just 1 and 100 friends.

It was found that young users tend to have significantly larger friend networks than older users as 27 percent of 18-29 year old Facebook users have more than 500 friends in their network, while 72 percent of users age 65+ having 100 friends or fewer.
