Sex on the Web, Economist Style

The Economist reports that social networking sites may be overtaking pornography on the web.
In America, the proportion of site visits that are pornographic is falling and people are flocking to sites categorised “net communities and chat”— chiefly social-networking sites such as MySpace, Bebo and Facebook. Traffic to such sites is poised to overtake traffic to sex sites in America any day now.

Bob Caswell, of Computers.net observes that while some of the social sites may still involve sex, "Most social networking sites I've seen seem to respect the user, something many sex sites still haven't figured out."
