“I'm grateful for the computer classes taught by Joanie at Emmaus/ SeniorNet  (Washington, DC).   I learned many computer skills, which were a great source of comfort, allowing me to stay connected with friends and family, to entertain myself with games and music, to skype with my daughter, and to stay informed of world events while I was home recovering.  Many thanks to Joe and the staff for all of their support.”

The numbers don't lie. According to Pew Internet & American Life Project, social media use among Internet users ages 50 and older has nearly doubled - from 22% to 42% over the past year. Half (47%) of Internet users ages 50-64 and 26% users age 65 and older now use social media.
