50% MySpace Users 35+

Here's an interesting tidbit from AP.

Youths No Longer Predominant at MySpace

How about that... As they, social network systems, become more mainstream, I seriously doubt that myspace will keep up. In fact for the last twelve months or so, we've been busy developing social network apps for niche markets.

Get ready for social networks 3.0. 

"NEW YORK (AP) - It's not all youths on MySpace. Half of the site's users are 35 or older, according to comScore Media Metrix's analysis of its U.S. Internet traffic
measurements. Only 30 percent are under 25 despite a common belief that the site is mostly populated with kids and young adults.

Just a year ago, teens under 18 made up about 25 percent of MySpace, the popular online hangout run by News Corp. That's now down to 12 percent in the comScore analysis released Thursday.

By contrast, the 35-54 group at MySpace grew to 41 percent in August, from 32 percent a year earlier.

"This analysis confirms that the appeal of social-networking sites is far
broader," said Jack Flanagan, executive vice president for comScore, adding that the data suggest that social networking is becoming mainstream."
