Elderly people do use Internet services.
This new generation of elderly people, the Silver Surfers, firstly started using the Internet to communicate and stay in touch with their friends and families. The 2.0 web gradually became an open door to any other type of services. Whether they are accessing their bank account, shopping, Skyping or talking on any other social media, the Boomers tend to use Internet more and more often.
The infographics proposed by APIA Insurance also explains that the present generation of boomers was actually born in an age full of inventions and technological discoveries, independently of what we may think today. We must not forget the fact that during the past decades there were invented the Walkman, the PC and more recently the Smartphone.
