iPad & Tablets lead to a more grown up Social Media?

One view anyway – seemingly based on the assumption that Tablets are going to appeal to a more mature demographic. Personally I’m not sure that the two correlate as much as implied.

Social media on the iPad and other tablets will be mainly about sharing information and files—things like e-books, links, documents, etc., instead of details about our lives—status updates about what you’re eating, tweets about what the dog is doing and other chatter that clutters up the social media space. Social media use on the iPad will most likely be more professional—happening when users are sitting down and have time to concentrate. In addition, the iPad will most likely initially be purchased by adults and working professionals because of its bigger screen and simplistic navigation, making it more popular with the crowd that uses social media services like LinkedIn and Facebook to network instead of share information about their personal lives with friends.
