The NY Times recently published an article about a psychology professor’s attempt to gain professional consensus around a new life stage called “emerging adults.” According to this professor, Jeffrey Arnett, “emerging adults” those who are between the age of 18 and the late 20s; a period in life when people are too old to be considered adolescents, but too young to be considered adults. Or as Jeff Buckley once elegantly lamented, “Too young to hold on and too old just to break free and run.”
The psychological profile of emerging adults is marked by “identity exploration, instability, self-focus, feeling in-between and a rather poetic characteristic [Arnett] calls ‘a sense of possibilities.’” Should this life stage be fully adopted by the professional and academic community, we may see policy changes in health care, education and social services sometime in our future, but there are real implications for marketers now.

So, who is right?

Here at Media Logic, we’ve been busy working out social media for older adults…
In our recent work with Healthways SilverSneakers Fitness Program, we’ve discovered that older adults are readily embracing social media – to share health, fitness and life goals –by increasing engagement among a mature audience by twenty-fold in just a few months.
