August 5, 2016

One in four over-65s are now using social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Affectionately dubbed ‘the Instagrans’, the number of over 65s who say they are active on social networks has grown to 23 per cent, up from 15 per cent in last year, according to the UK’s Office for National Statistics.

Over 65s are not just viewing content – one in five ‘Instagrans’ said they have uploaded their own content to the Internet to share with others.
