Someone said :
[...] since you seem to think that just because you know what it is you were part of the "MTV generation"
It is clear from what I said that I was not the core target of Bebo.
Just like my parents where not the core target of Facebook when they joined it.
Emulating the grumpiness of my granny and the teenage angst of my niece will not change my statement that it was aimed at the MTV generation.
In actual fact, I was wrong. Funnily. Because it turns out that I technically do qualify to belong to what is called the MTV generation despite never watching it at the time.
I am in fact between generation X and early millennials.
So it was actually aimed at what I perceived as being the MTV audience of that time. Which it turns out is not the MTV generation. Not aimed at me in any case.
I only joined it for a work reunion. Unlike other young adults suffering from arrested development and deluded that they were teenagers at heart.
Hardly a claim of "coolness".
