Do old people really know how to use the internet?

In class we had to figure out how to write a 1500 word feature on older people using the internet.

I have found some links that would start me off if I really did have to write this piece.

  • I found a blog that had some hillarious pictures with captions.
  • There is also a good telegraph article on old people using the internet to make them slightly less lonely.
  • Short satirical piece from the daily mash on old people using the internet even though they hate it.
  • The internet could help old people get even older according to the NY Daily News and Evercare.
  • There are hundreds of websites specifically made for “silver surfers”, such as silversurfer.net
  • Lots of stats stating that younger people like social networking and instant messaging more than old people……I’M SHOCKED
