Some things jump out at me. First, AM are less likely to be Creators than the average adult. No surprise here – AM are pretty busy and the mental energy (not to mention the time) needed to sit and create social media just isn’t there in as many people in this segment. They also tend not to be Joiners, partly because the existing social networks today don’t have a lot to offer them. So there’s some possibility that they might be willing to do this, especially when a quarter of them already do it. Now look at the Spectator and Critics areas – these index higher. So reading content and building on it is a natural for AM. This now begins to inform an objective and strategy for this group. Josh will talk about the different types of objectives tomorrow morning, but for now, let’s assume that the objective is to provide support for the busy AM.

Basic was to Profile targeting No behavioral targeting - demograhic targeting is mostly inaccurate. No incentive to provide good demos. Demos are 60% accurate. But when the user uses 200 words to define their brands, it's good data. Information is accurate because you're providing it to your friends. Also updating their profiles -- accurate. Can target well. More powerful than demographic or behavioral data could be.
