Facebook is reportedly working on ways to let kids under age 13 join its service, and it would doubtless be good for Facebook to hook as many young people as possible. But now comes a study that shows just how important Facebook is for senior citizens.
Forrester released a marketing report, called Digital Seniors," that finds that 60 percent of all U.S. seniors (those 65 and older) are online. And of those, about half -- 49 percent -- are using Facebook.
