Social Networks Geared Toward Ages? Part 2

Social Networks Geared Toward Ages?

Back to Gaming sites briefly. The main differences in Video Games and gaming choices and age differences seems to be ease of use, how comfortable people are with the game (from what era), and what each age group enjoys in their age group and as individuals. I know my Dad likes to play Hearts and Solitaire type games, my Mom enjoys Jeopardy, Scrabble online and word type games. There are even Social Network Toolbars available that have access to the coolest of games as well :) Try the free download Blog Nut Toolbar for some easy navigation, fun games, and getting connected with awesome people in a social network setting :)

Searching "Seniors" on the Google Search engine brought up loads of social network sites and information. Also, a link to the Yahoo search for "Seniors". The Yahoo directory gave links for mainly retirement communities, computers and the Internet, age discrimination, Events, Geriatrics, Organizations, and Active Adult Living sites. One I found laid out well and easy to navigate around was Senior Journal. A great site for seniors with Senior Citezen News and information Daily on the Web.

Seniors have long since left the safety nets of their email systems and home computer page zones and ventured out into forums, social networks, and blog sites :)

With sites like Seniors Search for everything from searches for seniors in business, entertainment, health and fitness, and society and culture, it is an outstanding helper site for seniors.

Kids seem to figure the mechanics of the Internet much faster than some adults do...

To Be Continued Tomorrow :)
