Why Seniors Are Getting More Tech-Savvy
While seniors don’t have the same level of Internet adoption as millennials, recent studies have shown that elderly people are now more connected than ever. As a matter of fact, more than 70% of Internet users aged 65+ now use the World Wide Web on a daily basis. Furthermore, Baby Boomers – people born between 1946 and 1964 – nowadays spend roughly 27 hours online every week. Some senior groups that are highly educated – especially the younger ones – report owning and using multiple Internet-capable devices. Interestingly enough, educated seniors are using the Internet more frequently than younger people. A vast majority of seniors, around 75% of them, use the Internet to communicate with friends and family members. To learn more about how you (and other seniors) are using the Internet, MedAlertHelp.org has created the infographic below that will help you understand the seniors’ relationship with the Internet.
