This is an interesting article, it really highlights a problem with adult social networks.

There's been a lot of growth in adult use of social networks in the past few years, but what's interesting is that the majority of adults tend to use social networks geared towards teenagers. Look at adoption of Boomj.com versus 35+ users on Myspace or Facebook.

There needs to be a fundamental shift in what adults look for in social networks, we as a demographic and age group want different things out of social networks.

Read my post at fuegonation.com/blog to find more details. I broke down the problems associated with current social networks and why they are not fundamentally appealing to social networks.

Hope this helps Jonathan!

Best,

It shouldn't be too surprising that kids are going to places meant for adults. When they see "Must be 18" or "13 and up only", that just increases their interest.
