Enhancing Social Action for Older Adults through Technology
With the rise in the use of information and communications technology in all age groups, and
the explosion of social media technology platforms and applications, the present is an exciting
time for promoting the use of technology in social action. This opportunity is especially relevant
for older adults, who have traditionally not had as many benefits of grassroots organizing and
representation as some other age groups and causes. Technology represents a significant
opportunity to organize, engage and mobilize older adults on issues important to them.
