Eons is a social network targeted for people over 50 years old (US residents only). As of Late January, Eons is open to all ages 13 and older. The Sequoia-backed company was started by Monster.com founder Jeff Taylor.
In September of 2007, Eons shed 24 staff members and another 12 employees "voluntarily" left. As Duncan Riley wrote, "Apparently old people aren't dying to use Eons."
BOOMj is another social network targeting seniors.
...june 3, 2012... To our Eons members,
We know many you have all been waiting patiently for news on the future of the site. As a team, we have been working to resolve the business issues with our service provider. We have negotiated in good faith to restore the site and move forward. Unfortunately our provider is demanding a financial commitment that we cannot make at this time. We are at an impasse. While we have worked behind the scenes to try to come up with an alternative to get the site restored, none of those have worked out either. For the foreseeable future, the site will remain down.
