The Importance of Social Media for Independent Seniors

In the last few years, there has been an effort to correlate the use of digital technologies with the impact they have on the quality of life of older adults. Various studies came up with interesting results. A research team at the University of Arizona found that seniors who frequently used Facebook had a 25 percent increase in mental skills and managed to improve their working memory.

According to the Phoenix Center based out in Washington D.C., one study concluded that surfing the internet helped reduce depression in senior test participants by 20 percent. Another study from the Journal of Cyberpsychology, Behavior and Social Networking showed that seniors who used social networking sites demonstrated positive emotional experiences based on breathing rates, pupil dilation and brain stimulation.
