  • Disclosure
    Nobody pays me to write any of the copy on my blog, and should I ever have the good fortune that they do, I will declare it. My main employment is as the owner and principal of The Future Place consultancy. The Future Place provides two key services 1) training and services to industry and academic bodies and 2) consultancy services to companies. The details of the companies I work with are a private matter, but if I blog about any company who has paid The Future Place more than expenses recently (approx. two years) I will mention that they are a client. I hold equity in Virtual Surveys and provide consulting services to them from time to time. I am paid to run courses for a number of trade bodies and over the last few years clients have included ESOMAR, AMSRS, MRS, and MRIA.

It seems like it is down to identity. Young people will only have their personal/projected identity online, while older people will also have their professional identities. While we may use social tools personally, I think a professional curiosity combined with networking opportunities at least drives us there.

If you were to repeat this process with people outside of the information/communication industries, I would think this age pattern would be less obvious, if indeed it still existed.
