Well I think that has more to do with your particular personality than age. We're about the same age and I would say that I have almost no 70s and 80s music knowledge but do remember cartoons from the 80s but no music. Facebook's fastest growing demographic are in their 40s. Although I will say that I have outgrown MTV but kinda excited about the real world coming to DC. I want to be in the background or better yet be that random guy who hooks up with one of the roommates.

Probably because the high school and college students have been on facebook for a while. Facebook is just starting to become popular with people that used to be thought of as too old for facebook.
