social networking websites
We have had discussions about social networking sites: which ones are best for types of networking, which ones are best for "adults", etcetera...
Friendster was (and may be) the largest "global online social network...adults, 18 and up..."
Orkut, run by Google, has a lock on Brazil and also eats up a big portion of the market in India. Hi5 is big in Latin America...
From a 2006 report:
“MySpace.com has the broadest appeal across age ranges, Facebook.com has created a niche among the college crowd, Friendster.com attracts a higher percentage of adults, and Xanga.com is most popular among younger teens..."
"...Xanga.com has a younger user profile, with 20 percent of its users in the 12-17 age range, about twice as high as that age segment’s representation within the total Internet audience...More than one-third (34 percent) of visitors to Facebook.com are 18-24 years old...more than two-thirds of MySpace visitors are age 25 or older."
