But not only are these networks exclusive to young people. Without going any further, today we learned that in a nursing home in Spain (in Badajoz, Extremadura) two retirees aged 75 and 69 teach their colleagues to use the new technologies., initiating them in the world of social media.
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!
Can you imagine grandparents browsing the Internet in search of new friends, or in search of love? 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. In their young days, they would not imagine that when they grew up they would discover the XNUMXst century form of socialization on Badoo. Although there are still nostalgic people, who prefer to meet people the way it has always been done ... leaving home!
