« YouTube Revenue Estimates | Main | MySpace confirms comScore traffic numbers, but how? Still doesn't smell right to me. »

These numbers may also reflect the joke factor. I have seen countless MySpace portfolios where the subject enters their age in as 99 y.o. etc...

I'd be interested to see if this report factored out bogus ages. One bogus profile can raise the average age of another to 60.

I don't buy it either!


Interesting piece of independent research to challenge comScore's figures. It certainly surprised me when I read it, but given the blanket coverage social networking is getting here in the UK, I can believe there's a significant shift to the mass market in this space. As for the precise figures, the old adage of lies, damn lies and statistics comes to mind...

Well said.
