We lived on farms, then we lived in cities, and now we're going to live on the internet!

One of the reasons for setting up a Brockley Central Facebook page was that it would provide fairly good insights in to the demographics of the BC audience.

Obviously it can only tell us about the 525 people who've "liked" the page and that group is skewed by the fact that Facebook itself is more often used by younger people and Facebook users do not always give complete or accurate personal information. However, with those caveats aside, it provides a useful snapshot of BC's user base, which is - perhaps surprisingly given the presumed gender of most of those who post - mainly female.

As you can see (click to enlarge), women aged 25-34 are the biggest group and women outnumber men by 9% (with 3% of users not giving their gender).

It's also interesting to see the places that most users hail from originally. Who knew there was such a strong Brockley / Newbury axis?

Please join the Brockley Central group now - people will think you are cool and want to sleep with you.
