Seniors Using Internet More Than Ever

Wow, Internet usage for the 70- to 74-year-old age group is skyrocketing!

I was excited to see the latest Internet usage research, which Pew Internet and American Life Project released on January 28.

It’s amazing to watch how the 70- to 74-year-old Internet usage category soared from 26 percent in 2005 to 45 percent in 2009. And, the 65- to 69-year-old category is well over 50 percent, with 56 percent of that category utilizing the web.  

This study also says that the 65+ age group uses email and search engines, along with researching health topics and booking travel online, at levels comparable to the younger age groups.
