58 Percent of Adults Don't Know About Social Networking

Social Networks Are Lost on Most Adults

I thought everyone knew what a social network was, especially since you really can't get away from them these days. But apparently you guys are on the cutting edge of trends, so give yourselves a pat on the back! Why? Well, a recent report says that 58 percent of worldwide adults surveyed are totally clueless about what a social network is. I know, I know, I'm shocked too.

Even more surprising, a whole 30 percent of Americans couldn't tell you what Myspace or Facebook is, let alone describe what Yelp, Loopt, or Sonic Living are about, since they are totally oblivious to the popular networking trends! My heart breaks a little to know that a big chunk of our nation's adults still don't understand the joys of Twitter, let alone all the great wines that are just waiting to be discovered through one of my social networking faves. I guess I'll have to start a grassroots campaign to educate the social network deprived out there — you know, take it to the streets!
