Boomers set their sites on the Web

Two new Web sites have swelled the ranks of boomer-targeted online communities, writes Paul Briand, for Examiner.com.

One site, www.Boomerous.com, positions itself as a resource for boomers to "quench the never-ending thirst to revive or cause their lives," according to president and "Chief Boomerous Officer" R. Trent Thompson.

And a site targeted to the formidable boomer women demographic, www.Silvervixens.com, operates on the premise that boomers are not homogenous.

"A 60 year old woman and Michael Jackson would have had little in common and yet they would both be classified as Baby Boomers," said the site's creator, Bonnie Price.

The social networking site TeeBeeDee is going offline, though. After two years and 140,000 registered members, the site is shutting down due to lack of revenue.
