Wired Seniors: A Fervent Few
This report on the Pew Internet & American Life Project indicates that despite the fact that more older adults are going online, the number of "wired" seniors is still relatively small. However, Internet users aged 50-64 will really take advantage of the Internet as they grow older. Email to and from families, hobby information, reading and news and health and medical information are the main areas of interest of this group.
