Limited Mobility Friendly
Cheap or Free
Social media is a cheap and effective way for your Old Mate to connect with friends, family, news and the wider world. It's especially useful if your Old Mate has mobility issues, too.
The use of social media is backed up by science with studies showing that older people who use social media experience better health and wellbeing .
Obviously, a basic level of digital literacy is needed for this activity. So, if your Old Mate is new to technology, check out our Digital Literacy activity.
