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.
