Do you think that people on social networking and media are just teens and college students?
There is the well-known YouTube user, Geriatic 1927 who creates videos as a memoir of his WW2 days and has over 45,000 subscribers and 2 million views. And there are a number of bloggers in their 80's, but perhaps the best and most well-known is Millie Garfield. And, if they aren't blogging, they're reading, take for example the AARP Pet Pals Blog and the others identified in the comments here.
Saga, a social networking site for over 50 crowd launched last month according to this Guardian Article.
The site, which has been running in trial mode for four months, has more than 13,000 users so far - and the company hopes this will increase dramatically now it is officially open. "Older people aren't shy of using the internet - they have a verve for life that applies online as well as offline," said Paul Green, a Saga spokesman. "Thirteen thousand is just a drop in the ocean - in theory the membership is practically limitless. Social networking isn't going to be for everyone, but the feedback so far has knocked our socks off."
Yes, the social networking site demographics are aging, but maybe as fast as pace as other segments.
