Facebook’s For Older Adults, Too!

“You will always be surrounded by true friends.”

Happy Older Americans Month!

Do you think technology’s just for the young? Nope. There’s an upward trend in those 65 and up to connect via social networks. Apparently, senior users love to be on Facebook for “surveillance” purposes–to see how kids and grandkids are doing. I think the communication can go both ways. Find out how your favorite older adult is doing by looking online!

Fun fact: Chatting and wall posting are primary activities for older Facebook users.

  1. So true Jennifer. As an older adult, I’ll vouch for it.

  2. I’m not there yet in the “older” category, but I love keeping up with my children and grands, so I completely agree!

      Definitely not in the older category yet! Young folks like to catch up as well :)

  3. My mother loves facepage (Facebook), on her ibook (iPad) primarily for the photos. She is legally blind so this is a perfect way for her to click and enlarge photos of her kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids.

      Oh, that’s wonderful, Mona! I didn’t even think about the enlarging capability.
