Are parents responsible for MySpace’s aging population

I was chatting with Penny at Digital Eskimo the other day about some research I’ve been reading on teen behaviour online and off.

She made the connection that perhaps the reason that MySpace’s demographic is fairly significantly (and suddenly) shifting to the 35+ age group may (in part) be attributed to parents joining the service to see what their kids are getting up to?

It’s an interesting thought – I wonder how one might test the hypothesis?
