the introduction of Facebook in 2004 and Twitter in 2006. It is often the first thing people check in with in the morning and the last thing before one falls asleep. Why the major increase in commitment to these


digital networking sites over the years? One word: connection. We all desire to feel connected to our- selves, each other and the world around us. With these platforms all containing evocative imagery, videos and timely world events, it’s no wonder that people are actively engaging daily. As for the fastest growing de- mographic on Facebook? Senior citizens! Here are the top five reasons why seniors are getting social: 1) Share stories – people above the age of 65 are not only still vibrant and able to learn how to navigate the digital world, they are also a wealth of informa- tion! There are many different groups one can get in- volved with based on their interests. 2) Meet people – perhaps in that group of common


interests, they might find a new friend to get to know or go for coffee with! 3) Find a job or new hobby – with plenty of en-


ergy to still contribute to society in some way, seniors may often find many job opportunities for seniors in the classifieds section. 4) Keep in touch – with the ability to upload pho- tos and share them in seconds, these platforms allow family and relatives to stay up to speed with all of the happenings of their loved one’s lives. 5) Pure entertainment! Who doesn’t like to watch a cute puppy video or to try a new delicious recipe? There are plenty of ways to stay entertained online! So this spring why not get online and get connect-
