Not ALL Seniors Fear Technology

The ever-changing face of technology can be scary for anyone, especially seniors. Recent studies show, however, that not all seniors fear technology. In fact, many are embracing it!

According to the 2011 Pew Internet study, more than half of adults over 50 access the Internet on a regular basis. More and more seniors are purchasing smart phones, computers and other devices to stay online.

When aging adults are willing to try simple technology, like a basic flip-phone, they are likely to be more willing to continue exploring. The 2012 Pew study found that once seniors started using the Internet, they continued to do so regularly. Sticking with that trend will likely inspire seniors to try other forms of technology.
