Survey: Virtual Social Networks - Get A Life

In a survey by silicon.com, the results show the majority seem to give the virtual world the thumbs down.

You may be able to fly around chatting to giant rabbits or battling trolls but the lure of virtual worlds such as Second Life is not as strong - for silicon.com readers at least - as you might think.

Asked whether they'd ever visited a virtual world, more than half (58 per cent) of respondents to a silicon.com reader poll said they had never been tempted to find out what life as an orc is like. And although one-fifth (20 per cent) had decided to take the plunge once to see what all the fuss is about, they said they got bored and didn't go back for more.
However, a sizeable minority of silicon.com readers do frequent virtual worlds, according to the poll.

We're all old foggies, kids today weild online like we did red wagons.

Yeah, the average reader of Silicon.com is probably, like, over thirty or something. It's completely the wrong demographic.

In related news, 90% of respondents at Socialist Luddites Forum said the iPhone will have no effect on Apple's stock price.
