Social Control

November 1, 2007

There’s going to be a new Social Network, along the lines
of Facebook and Myspace, for the over fifties.

Social segregation seems to be order of the day.

    Oh, you’re aiming too low with your cynicism: think target marketing. 🙂


  2. Thanks for making me laugh out loud. I heard some old boffin on the radio going on about how “we” (the over-fifties) don’t speak the same language as “them” (presumably the under-fifties). My post was not based on cynicism, but on a very real fear of being trapped in some muffled linguistic space with “him”.

    Ahh. Yes, I can see that – I have no desire to be trapped with one of those people, either. I think they’re what happens to the “cool kids” in high school: they’re forever after trying to create a clique, so that they can be cool once again. I shun them, mostly because they’re pitiful. 🙂
