A recent study by the Pew Center’s Internet and American Life Project highlighting how more older Americans than ever before are online has generated some great news coverage focused on older adults, connectivity and the power of social networking. Today NPR did a great report based on this study highlighting one of Facebook’s oldest users, Florence Detlor, 101.
The point of the story is that Florence is not unique in that more than half of adults over age 65 are now online and using tools like Facebook. That’s an increase from just 14 percent when Pew first started collecting data in 2000.
It’s a great story and I highly recommend listening to a replay on the NPR blog here.
