Is GenX Social?

May 28, 2008

Question of the night: Which social sites are most successfully catering to the needs and interests of GenX?

I just finished creating a slide showing the top 10 social sites and the demographic audiences they serve. There are no sites in the top 10, and few others of scale, that appear to serve an audience that is primarily in the 30-50 year old range.

A couple come to mind: Jeff Taylor’s Eons and Tom Gerace’s Gather. Both are Boston-based and having a hard time pushing through the half million user threshold. Maybe if more people followed my articles on Gather the site would have more traffic!

What’s up with GenX? I’d love to hear your opinion.
