Do non-IT people participate in social news sites?

When I look at the way information technology topics predominate at social news sites, I wonder if that is really what their creators intended.
What about people who don’t have a major interest in that – do they participate? I don’t think many do.
What if 90% of social news site users are IT – people, I sometimes wonder.
When I think that I cannot help remember former South African president John Vorster’s words about sports sanctions: “Well, we’ll just play with ourselves”, he said!

    What’s an IT person? Isn’t that someone who uses IT? If it is then I’d say that 100% of social news sites are IT people. If IT people are those whom provide IT services, then you may be surprised.

    I mean someone who provides IT services. They are the ones who are interested in articles about Google, Microsoft, Linux, Web 2.0, etc.
    Millions of other people don’t have the kind of IT-type interests that seem to predominate on social news sites.
