social media for older adults
March 30, 2015Brunswick Forest
In the U.S., more and more older adults are opting to use social media, according to studies by the Pew Research Center. Older adults are finding that media is a wonderful way to stay in touch with family members that are spread out in different parts of the country and is a great way to connect with the grandkids.
CONNECT WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY ONLINE
In our busy, global society, face-to-face connection is hard to come by. Keeping up with friends and family online via social media is a fantastic way to stay connected and keep up with the latest news and photos from loved ones. Older adults who opt to relocate to retire find that using social media is a good way to stay connected to family members in other parts of the country.
MOBILE DEVICES INCREASE SOCIAL MEDIA USAGE
Tablets, e-readers and smartphones make it easy to use social media, and older adults are taking advantage of that by checking in with friends and family via their mobile devices. With easy-to-use apps, setting up and managing social media accounts on-the-go is a cinch.
