Did you know that Social networking begins at 50? Eons.com launched today as a social networking site targeting baby boomers. While I am not part of the targeted audience, Julian gets closer everyday, and we both agreed that the site was engaging and an enjoyable site to visit. AND – Just like on MySpace, you have to lie about your age in order to gain access.
While there doesn’t seem to be profile functionality like a MySpace or LinkedIn – Eons.com DOES have a career center powered by who else? Well Monster of course. See Eons.com was created by Jeff Taylor. So – How do you get to the Careers Channel? It is buried 2 pages below the home page. Come with me:
Click 1 – Eons.com Home to the MONEY channel:
Click 2 – Once in MONEY click on ‘Career Center’:
Ta Da – Welcome to another Monster distribution channel:
Of course since the buzz about this site IS the social networking aspect -I wanted to see the ability to connect and mention of blogs. At first, Eons.com did not disappoint, linking to recent posts from “Jobs Talk Member Blogs” – see arrow below:
But then… Doh…………
Oh – well. It is launch day – we’ll go easy on them.
