(1888PressRelease) May 12, 2009 - 60 + Site Equalizes Grandparents and Kids.
SeniorEnquirer.com, a new social site designed for “grown ups” works like a newspaper. Devoted to men and women over 60, it offers members free use of their own social network to send, receive and respond to photos, Emails, music, games, blogs / forums plus keep up with real time news and weather.
Finally, a chance for the “SENIOR” generation to vent, brag and question their peers around the world. “It’s been quite a while coming, I love it” says Eleanor C. from Montgomery County, Pa (a pre release group study member) “Now I can discuss politics, share stories and photos with folks who understand where I’m coming from and where I’ve been”.
Much has been made of generation X, high school and college kids using social networks that have their ideas and videos displayed on the Internet. A few sites dominate social networking for the younger set; yet true seniors, have been left out or simply dismissed as being too old or lacking appropriate computer knowledge.
(Seniors, men and women over 60, should not be confused with “boomers”)
The over 60 generation is the most political powerful and most overlooked group in all of North America. SeniorEnquirer.com gives the over 60 crowd the opportunity the you-tubers and face-bookers have used (and abused) with an added touch of class and experience.
More and more seniors are surfing the Internet and getting over the technophobia of using computers and technologies in general and the Internet in particular.
Majd Alwan, Director of the Center for Aging Services Technologies in Washington D.C. writes, "Internet usage among seniors has increased from 12 percent in 2000 to over 37 percent in the last year". According to the Pew Research Center, "New cyber-curious seniors, in many senior centers, retirement communities and long-term care facilities have opened Internet cafes and begun offering classes to teach older Americans what many of them swore they would never need – a computer !
SeniorEnquirer.com is especially easy to use. Employing the latest technology, everything from blogging to forums to posting pictures is a simple process, aided by on page video instructions and simple help messages.
