Mobile Video Chatting for Grandparents
We all know about the digital divide between younger Americans and retired senior citizens. It has been well documented. Many seniors get frustrated with new technology very quickly. It’s too cumbersome. It takes too long. And no matter how simple the computing process is, it seems like things always go wrong. Still, some seniors are willing to go through the learning curve for one reason: they want to video chat with their grandchildren.
Believe me, this is a huge motivation. My parents light up like Christmas trees every time they log in to Skype. But my folks have adapted pretty well to the digital age. Not all seniors are able to do that.
