I agree or at least it seems that way at times. I think parents have really been more attracted to the itellectual atmoshpere of EP, since I largely believe that parents should be involved in their children's internet use I think this is one reason. Also facebook has lost it's appeal/novelty seems sort of the myspace syndrome reoccuring.
I'm not really sure. I've just joined and not talked to many people, so I have not really noticed the age of visitors.
mabye so, on fb and others people tend to be visous, on here you can be whomever, maybe safer and less personal, as long as people don't treat them wrong and become creeps it's fine, so much negitive in the social sites due to they know who the people are, on here you can vent etc and feel ok at same time.
