Social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace are a great way to stay in touch with friends and family. They also help to reconnect people who haven’t spoken in years. It’s no wonder then that older people are signing up to these websites in droves. Whether keeping tabs on grand children or looking up old classmates, older people are signing on to social networking sites by the millions. A few users might be upset at the thought of having to watch what they post with the watchful eyes of older relatives out there, but most are adjusting well and enjoy the connection. Are you a part of one of these websites? Let us know in the comments.
