Older Adults and Technology Use

The Pew Research Center has just published a report called "Older Adults and Technology Use". This report is based on findings from a telephone survey of 6,224 people ages 16 and older living in the United States. The main findings from this report are:
  • 59% of seniors (age 65 and above) go online - which is a 6% increase in one year.
  • 47% say they have a high-speed broadband connection at home.
  • 77% of older adults have a cell phone.
  •  Among older adults who use the internet, 71% go online every day or almost every day.
  • Among older adults who use the internet, 27% use social networking sites, such as Facebook.
