Americans Aged 50 And Above Are Increasingly Embracing Smartphone Technology And Social Media, New Study Proves

A new research conducted by AARP is shedding light on the growing acceptance of social media among older aged individuals in the US.

The report that was recently published had to do with a survey that was carried out in September and October of last year. Moreover, the participants included a sample comprising of national representatives of about 2979 people in the US.

The results showed how those citizens that were 50 and above were very keen on embracing technologies linked to the smart world. Be it smartphones, smart TVs, and so on and so forth- you name it and they’re loving it.

As per the study, around 86% of the adults that were above the age of 50 claimed to own smartphones and that’s a staggering 77% rise from the year 2019. Meanwhile, 59% stated that they were in the ownership of a tablet and that’s another 47% rise from 2019.

On the other hand, around 70% spoke about adults being 50 years and above and using smartphones for a host of various types of activities. From texting and sending out emails to more, this user group really does find it a useful endeavor.

Meanwhile, other tasks conducted with this include sending out directions and getting access to the internet. And all of these results have dramatically increased in the past three months or so.
