The Evolving Demographics of ‘Net Use [8:38 am]

Silver surfers say net is ‘vital’

Two polls marking Silver Surfers’ day, suggest technologies like the net are considered essential by older people.

More than half of over-55s online say the net gives them a new lease of life. Seven percent look for love online, and 22% play games.

The annual Silver Surfers’ day tries to introduce older groups to technologies.

The day, which gets support from the European Union’s social fund, aims to ease 10,000 “digitally excluded” older people into a digital life by showing them how technologies might add to their lives.

The attitudes towards technologies across the generations is levelling out, thinks technology giant Hewlett Packard (HP).
