Last night msnbc's dateline had a expose on MySpace.Com.  Apparently this has become a teen hide out and teens are disclosing too much contact information.

Why MySpace Scares The Crap Out of Me

Why? Because I just don?t get it. I wish I did, but I don?t. Those crazy kids today, and all that. I mean, I get the components of it all - community, pictures, messages, music, social networking, yada-yada, but I don?t *get* why MySpace in particular is popular. I don?t grok it down deep. Or Facebook for that matter (not that I?ve ever seen Facebook - what a competitive advantage, hey? If you?re out of school you can?t even see what the hell the site does!). Why did these sites get such traction when others didn?t?

And now MySpace is going mobile with Helio. (And did you notice the default link on Opera mini as well?) Makes me shiver really, because unlike some new tech or trend, I may never be able to truly get what?s going on just because I?m a grey-haired father of a toddler who lives in suburbia, drives an SUV and would rather watch a movie on Saturday night rather than hit the clubs. And it?s not just that - I?m a geek - I *never* understood my peers when I was that age anyways.

New mobile services are centered squarely at the MySpace culture and demographic? if I don?t grok them, I may not grok the future of mobility.

That?s going to keep me up at night, I swear.

Basically, teens like to communicate with teens in a private teen or pre-adult iWorld. They are usually no so bright (would rather go to the mall or given resrictions pretend they are at a mall from their own computer). ... rather watch TV or play a video game than read a book.  Make FastBlogIt look like a mall (the social part of it) exciting pictures of boys & girls to play with - maybe MOO like and I bet you have a winner.  The mobile aspect & opportunity is also interesting to them. The TV dramas aimed at teens (watch the WB channel & some others), watch what the adverts for mobile phones are aiming at, text messaging etc & the clues might come out. When all else fails invite your son to bring some friends over for a party & talk to some of them (boys & girls)
