Social networks and the elderly

It is neither more nor less than a computer workshop in which two residents and former workers of companies in the technology sector will be the new computer science teachers of their fellow residents.

And they say that the use of social media among those over 55 years of age it grew by 88% during the month of May 2010, a figure that rises to almost 100% among those over 65 during the same period of time. So from what you see, our elders have discovered the interest of flirting and meeting people on Badoo ... xD!

Well, you don't have to use so much imagination, because from what we have seen, it is more common than we think, dear friends.
