My Space Looks at Scalp and Finds More Gray Hair than Previously Thought...


Apparently the AP put out this news based on a Media Matrix study: "Half of the site's users are 35 or older, according to comScore Media Metrix's analysis of its U.S."

Actually not necessarily half but more like 41% of Myspace is 35-54. That is a huge age range to factor into one group in order to make a point. But ok... As one of my collegues says ' Myspace is for predators'. Right. I think of it as a great place to find old college/secondary school friends from years ago, a place to post a few links to sites of mine. A central, semi-legal place to place links to video/music that I like that they host rather than me (yay... no RIAA comming after me). My wife can keep in touch with her employees through there, i.e. semi-private time sheet, employee photo sharing, etc. And a great place to hear music from new bands in a very central place.

Why wouldn't that appeal to the older crowd? GeoCities once did well because they let anyone create a site and had a very active community until Yahoo took it over. Yeah, there predators, spammers, porn posters, and more back then but overall, a very vibrant community.

In your opinion is Myspace just Geocities II with more behind the scenes? And a dumbed down interface/web page creation system?
