It is inevitable that growing old, with children and grandchildren building their own lives and families, can be quite lonely for seniors. The internet can provide so many opportunities for seniors all over the world. When they could not travel to see their loved ones, grandparents could easily connect through social media. Grandparents could also stay connected with communities through these platforms.
Technology may be a bit daunting for their age, but various aids could help them adapt to such technologies. What the world needs to learn, on the other hand, is how to communicate well so that these seniors easily understand social norms being used online. Maybe learn to practice how to be wary of who could see what is being posted on social media. Perhaps having these elders on the online community can help people learn how to be more proactive when posting things.
