LinkedIn has the oldest average user base, with an average consumer aged  44 years old, and 79% aged 35+. Slightly younger users are found on Yelp (42 years), Facebook (40 years), and Flickr (40 years).

In contrast, the average Twitter user age has decreased by 2 years to 37 years. The lowest average age range reported was deviantART (29 years). Other social media sites with low average consumer ages are Hacker News (30 years), Orkut (32 years),Github (32 years), Reddit (34), Tumblr (35 years), and Twitter (37 years).
