The Elderly & The World Wide Web (Infographic)

While seniors don’t have the same level of Internet adoption as millennials, recent studies have shown that elderly people are now more connected than ever.

As a matter of fact, more than 70% of Internet users aged 65+ now use the World Wide Web on a daily basis. Furthermore, Baby Boomers – people born between 1946 and 1964 – nowadays spend roughly 27 hours online every week.

Some senior groups that are highly educated – especially the younger ones – report owning and using multiple Internet-capable devices. Interestingly enough, a vast majority of seniors, around 75% of them, use the Internet to communicate with friends and family members.

At MedAlertHelp.org, we’ve created the infographic below that will help you understand the seniors’ relationship with digital technology, more specifically – their relationship with the Internet.

    long as I provide credit and sources back to your website?

  5. Hello to everү body, it’s mу first paү a visit of thіs website; this
    wеblog includes awesome and really fine stuff designed for readers.

  6. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to
    get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you have done a awesome job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast
    for me on Opera. Outstanding Blog!

  7. This looks like an interesting infographic, and I can see that your tech team has done some good work thinking about how to present all this data, but I wonder if you have some kind of regular text version of all this rich data that would be easier for some users to read – like for example, blind or low vision users who can’t see the images very well?

    Also, the list of sources at the end of the infographic is so small that it is practically unreadable, and since its embedded in an image, I can’t click on any of those links like regular hyperlinks. Maybe you could just provide a regular text list of sources? Or maybe you can provide the infographic as an accessible PDF?

      Hello Philip, I’m glad you liked it. Those are, unfortunately, the downsides of an infographic. However, I can help you out seeing as one of our partners recently ran a piece based on our infographic that was optimized for low vision users. You can find it here.

  8. Hiya! Quick question that’s totally off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

    My website looks weird when browsing from my iphone4.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able
    to correct this issue. If you have any suggestions,
    please share. Thanks!

  9. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

  10. Having read this I believed it was very informative.
    I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this article together.
    I once again find myself personally spending a lot of time both reading and posting comments.
    But so what, it was still worth it!

  11. […] La infografía la tenéis en un post de Nikola Djordjevik allí. La infografía es muy amplia, Djordjevik la resume en unas pocas frases: […]

  12. Hi there, You have done an incredible job. I will definitely digg it and personally suggest to my friends. I am sure they’ll be benefited from this site.

  13. With havin so much content do you ever run into
    any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it
    appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any methods to help reduce content
    from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  14. It’s very straightforward to find out any matter on net as
    compared to books, as I found this piece of writing at this web page.
