ActiveEmptyNesters.comworks like any other social networking site, with interest groups,photo sharing options, and the chance to create polls and quizzes.The caveat is users must be older than 50 to join.

Ronald Mercier, creator of the site, said that many of thesocialnetworking sites created in the last five years were targetedat Gen X and Gen Y. He wanted to create a site targeted to an oldergeneration.

In addition to meeting friends and connecting with other users,site members can also upload videos and start blogs.

"What makes this time unique is that an empty nester now has thetime and finances to catch up on their life's to-do list," Merciersays. "This might include travel, hobbies, maybe a new businessventure or even finding a life companion. This is the time whenthey can catch up with what life has to offer outside of the dailygrind of work or raising a family, and ActiveEmptyNesters isdesigned specifically to help them achieve these new goals."
