Midlifers and Boomers; 20+ Best Facebook Pages for You

midlifers and boomers; 25+ best Facebook pages for you

On the heels of my first post in a series of resources for Midlifers and Boomers, I’ve composed a list of targeted Facebook pages for the woman over forty.  They range from well-known, popular pages to obscure, smaller ones. As long as each is useful or entertaining, that’s all that matters.

The topics covered vary widely as well.  From pressing health matters to funny memes, you’ll get a little bit of everything with this list.  Consider it a Facebook buffet.  Are you ready to eat up?


Humor and Inspiration

  • Rocking Over 40 encourages you to be bold and own your age while striving for personal and professional success.  Very empowering messages found here!

  • Amazing Women 50 and Better is a blend of positivity and humor.  Stop by when you need a little ‘pick-me-up.’

  • Purple Clover has a sarcastic and clever vibe.  I simply couldn’t leave this popular page off the list.

  • Midlife Mayhem is interactive and entertaining.  Join in and answer questions or laugh at pictures and memes.

  • Life Starts After 50 inspires and helps you feel better about getting older with themed days like ‘motivation Monday’ and ‘feel good Friday.’

  • Aging Abundantly shares uplifting cultural stories and thought-provoking ideas about midlife and beyond.

  • Sad But True Life of a Middle Aged Woman is, you guessed it, funny with a dash of unfiltered attitude for flavor.

  • Women After 50 boasts well over one million followers for two reasons; it is witty and covers all the topics close to our hearts.

Parenting, Grandparenting, and Family Life

  • Grown and Flown gives parenting advice and support to those with older teens and young adults.  An empty nest doesn’t mean your worries stop.

  • The Midlife Mamas shares the most interesting family-oriented posts on the web.  I can quickly get sucked into the feed on this page if I’m not careful.

  • Daily Caring gives practical tips and advice to those caring for a parent, spouse or sibling.  Such a good resource!

  • Fabulous Grandma is the page you follow the second you find out you’re gonna have a grandchild.  This is THE feel-good place for grandmothers!

Travel and Leisure

  • My Itchy Travel Feet is for boomers who have wanderlust and long to find inspiration through adventures.

  • Mid-life Cruising! shares the experiences of a couple as they live their lives sailing the Caribbean.  Bon voyage!

  • AARP Travel Center is a partnership between AARP and Expedia that offers member discounts on travel to locales all over the world.

Money, Business, and Career

  • iRelaunch educates and supports professionals attempting to return to work after a career break.

  • Boomer Benefits empowers those new to Medicare and unsure of what it covers.  Use it as a resource to compare benefits and prices.

  • Life Wise Lady is my page (not so subtle #humblebrag).  I help women over forty create and grow successful businesses of their own.

  1. Thank you so much for the shout out Jen! I love the list you compiled, I will check them out and share.
    Rock on!
    Founder of Rocking Over 40

    1. Hey, Cynthia. Your page does rock! Thank you for sharing my post.

  2. I’m so glad to see that I’m not alone out there. I try to share wisdom and laughs, articles and whatnot with like minded older women. Sometimes it works and other times not so much. That is the beauty of aging and retiring… work when you want to, but when a funny comes along………well I just can’t help myself.

    1. Hi, Olivia. Thank you for your lovely comment. There is beauty in aging. We women need to stick together and support each other as much as possible.

  3. What a great list. Thanks for putting this together about Midlife, Boomers Facebook pages.

    1. Hey, Rebecca. I am pleased to know you found value in this list. These Facebook pages are all worth a look. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Thanks so much for this list! I spend a goodly amount of time on FB and hadn’t heard of any of these! I’m now following 4 or 5 of them. Got here via your Blog Share Learn post – another great FB group 🙂

    1. Hey, Julia. I am very pleased you found a few new pages to follow. Thank you for letting me know. Have a great week!

  5. Thanks for doing the virtual legwork and compiling this list, Jen! There are several here I wasn’t familiar with; can’t wait to check ’em out.

    1. Hi there, Roxanne. No problem. I enjoyed the research for this list. Let me know what you think of the new pages after you check them out. Thanks for sharing.

  6. is for boomers that choose to thrive instead of go quietly into old age.

    1. Hi, Margaret. Thanks for letting me know. I will head on over to that page and have a look. I am always interested in new pages.

  7. So many Facebook pages, Instagram accounts and blogs. So little time. However, as a baby boomer travel blogger myself, I do spend a good bit of time with all of them. I’m an admin for a “secret” Facebook group for Boomer Travel Bloggers. It’s “secret” because FB was sending over too many people who are neither baby boomers nor travel bloggers. There are 2 criteria for membership: 1) that you are a Baby Boomer (born 1946-1964 or thereabouts) and 2) that you have a travel blog or a lifestyle blog with a hefty travel component. The group is not for self promotion and marketing, but rather is a safe place for us to ask each other questions, including tech questions that might have our children rolling their eyes. If anyone is interested in joining, you can send me a FB message with the url for your blog. We participate in the group as ourselves, not as our blog names. Alternatively, you can email me at Suzanne at boomeresque dot com.

    1. Hello, Suzanne. I’m so happy you added your group here. We should all be sharing and supporting each other’s work. Thank you.

  8. Love your lists like this Jen – just added another couple to my “Likes” – we Midlifers need to stick together 🙂

    1. Hi, Leanne. I’ll have more lists like this up soon. I’m pleased you enjoy them. We do need to stick together. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Thanks for including the Facebook page for My Itchy Travel Feet, The Baby Boomer’s Guide to Travel. We love inspiring boomers to get up off the couch and go. And as soon as I’m back from my latest adventure in the South Pacific, I’ll be checking out the rest of the suggestions on this list.

    1. Hey, Donna. Nice FB page you have there. Have a great time in the South Pacific. I can’t wait to hear about it.

  10. Looks like a great list, I need to go visit all of them!

    1. Hi there, Beth. I hope you get a chance to visit them all. Let me know what you think. I always appreciate the feedback. Thanks for sharing.
