Let me know how you get on, if you get any gossip etc.
If you’ve never heard of Club Penguin, you should have. I’ve blogged about it before, although it was a year ago so I don’t blame you for not remembering ( Kids and Penguins) BUT you can see here, that stickability wise, it doesn’t do too badly at all. Maybe you should keep an eye on Club Penguin hmm? Australian usage, those figures. Habbo of course, still rules (200,000 Australian tweens, spending about 5x as long as ClubPenguin). That could be the age gap though. And the revenue streams vary.
There’s more gold in assessing the NeoPets vs ClubPenguin vs Habbo playoff than the MySpace vs Facebook vs Bebo, in my book.
