It Appears That I’m Now “Elderly”

I’m always looking for interesting content to post here — especially graphics.  The other day, I received a graphic called “The Elderly and the World Wide Web.”  Now that I’m 68, I think of elderly as folks in the 90’s.  Not so, according to the article and graphic below.  I decided to post it here just for fun and for my elderly Boomer friends….

While seniors don’t have the same level of Internet adoption as millennials, recent studies have shown that elderly people are now more connected than ever.

As a matter of fact, more than 70% of Internet users aged 65+ now use the World Wide Web on a daily basis. Furthermore, Baby Boomers – people born between 1946 and 1964 – nowadays spend roughly 27 hours online every week.

Some senior groups that are highly educated – especially the younger ones – report owning and using multiple Internet-capable devices. Interestingly enough, a vast majority of seniors, around 75% of them, use the Internet to communicate with friends and family members.

At, we’ve created the infographic below that will help you understand the seniors’ relationship with digital technology, more specifically – their relationship with the Internet.
