Eons.com Jumps the Shark

A boomer targeted website is going down the tubes.

Jeff Taylor who started Monster is behind EONS. Now it looks as though he is 1 for 2 because I just can’t see them hanging on in this space (no pun intended.)

Savvy Boomer did a great job tracking them from the very beginning and has some breathtaking charts of the heights Eons rose to and then tumbled from.

As you can imagine, they were very well funded. When it’s all said and done, probably $50 million will be pissed away on the venture.

The site was pretty clunky as I pointed out soon after their launch. It didn’t improve enough for me to spend time there. The blogging portion was woefully lacking in features and ability to browse. Their ranking (they called them Booms! – clever) system never did much either.

Listen and you can hear the death rattle.

I think I’ll mosey over and post this there too.

Eons.com Jumps the Shark — 4 Comments

  1. “Jump the Shark”, good Christ, is common terminology in my family! Ben and I have both spent time on Monster; local law firms afflicted with terminal penny-pinching use it because the area legal professional publication, The Daily Journal, charges more than these firms are willing to pay their employees. If a firm advertises on Monster and not in DJ, this is a job you do NOT want to take.

    $50 million pissed away is nothing in these parts. Probably guys in Newport Beach take $50 million craps every day, then wipe their asses on the employees they hired through Monster.

  2. Interesting. Always a champion of the underdog, I’ve been rooting for the vastly underfunded eGenerations.com. (Disclaimer: I’m a columnist there, but not a paid one). I’ve always found EONS confusing and hard to use. eGenerations seems to have a more personal touch–and far fewer members, of course. By the way, I’m a Senior rather than a Boomer. Can our generations enjoy the same web sites? I think the jury is still out on that.

  3. @Gretchen: So Jump the Shark is a fun thing in your house? ie: jumping Ben? Or that’s your term for low-paying law firms?

    @Seniorwriter: You want an underdog? Try Boomspeak.com, I’m an unpaid writer for them. Now we both plugged our buddies.
    I have no doubt any adult can enjoy any blog/website.
