Online Habits Coming Slowly to America’s Older Adults

Older adults hit a digital milestone last year: For the first time since the Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project began conducting surveys, a majority (53 percent) of people over age 65 used the Internet. The proportion has since inched upward, to 54 percent.Which certainly represents progress. When Pew first began tracking Internet use in 2000, only 13 percent of seniors were online.
