Facebook: shifting mobile internet demographics?

From the Independent
...the rapidly growing popularity of social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook is having a knock-on effect in the mobile sector. A spokesman for T-Mobile said six months ago the top 20 sites accessed on its network were predominantly news or adult pages and most of its users were males over 40. Yet today the most popular sites are social networking pages, triggering a demographic shift in its user base toward 20- to 30-year olds.
Do you Facebook from your mobile?

Recruitment

I'm getting sick of being regulary phoned, spammed and accosted on LinkedIn about a 'great opportunity' with a 'top digital agency'. At least when it is via LinkedIn it is in direct response to what is essentially a limited version of my CV online. So read with interest Iain Tait's perspective:
At Poke we keep having these odd cyclical conversations about a couple of key senior people we’re trying to hire. We’re looking for entrepreneurial, operationally aware, client facing, creatively minded, inspiring, strategic folk with an interesting set of past experiences - oh and they need to love digital which is our specific bit (simple huh!). The long and short of it is that we’re trying to find creative mini-CEOs. And I don’t think we’re the only ones.
