In reply to John P. Mello Jr.
I agree that marketers are salivating about all of us baby boomers, hoping to cash in on the next phase of our lives - retirement. Where I think Eons and a few other sites missed the boat (as evidenced by recent layoffs there) is that there has to be some focus to the connection. Being a baby boomer is great, but who wants to connect only on that basis -it's too broad. Hence new sites like www.grandparents.com are trying to find additional common ground. My site, for example, www.topretirements.com, focuses on helping these baby boomers find the best place to retire to. It will be interesting to look at this again in a few years and see how it all shakes out.

Content Marketing on ALL EC
Is "too much screen time" really a problem?
Yes -- smartphone addiction is ruining relationships.
Yes -- but primarily due to parents' failure to regulate kids' use.
Possibly -- long-term effects on health are not yet known.
Not really -- lack of self-discipline and good judgement are the problems.
No -- angst over "screen time" is just the latest overreaction to technology.
No -- what matters is the quality of content, not the time spent viewing it.
