    We’ve known for a while that Facebook users are getting a lot older, but now new data released by Nielsen reveals that the number of seniors (65 and older) using the web has increased by 6 million in the last five years. Not only that, but nearly half of online seniors visited Facebook or YouTube last month, making them their 3rd and 4th most visited online destinations.

    The research confirmed a trend that we’ve seen in recent years: that more seniors are becoming active on the web. In November of 2004, there were 11.3 million active seniors online. In November 2009, that number jumped by 55% to 17.5 million. In addition, they spend more time on the web, totaling an average of 58 hours a month in front of the browser.

    While those numbers didn’t surprise us, we were interested in data that Nielsen collected on their browsing habits. Take a look at these two tables. The first reveals the most common activities among active online seniors. The second shows the top ten websites and online destinations that this demographic visited last month:

    A majority of online seniors check their email, print maps, play around with photos, and check the weather. All of these tasks seem utility-based, but then again, we expect that these numbers would be similar in almost any other demographic. Come on: who here hasn’t checked their email, mapped something out, or paid their bills online in the last 30 days?

    The more interesting data comes from the top 10 online destinations table. While Google Search was an obvious winner, Windows Media Player is a bit of a surprise until you realize just how many websites embed the thing. However, the rise of Facebookto #3 on this list, when a year ago it was the #45 most visited website by seniors, is a huge sign of just how mainstream social networking has become. YouTube at #4 is another confirmation of this trend.

    This is just what happens when new technologies become more accessible and more mainstream. Let us know what you think of these trends in the comments.

    Labda kichwa habari kinawabagua.... lakini kama kundi ndani ya jamii wanayohaki ya kutumia mtandao na tovuti zilizofanyafanyiwa utafiti.

    Mzee moja aliwahi kumwambia kijana wa miaka 20:.. "Mimi mzee..ngozi tu.. lakini roho yangu kama yako kijana ..changa! inatamani kila unachokitamani"

    Na watu weupe wakaja na msemo..: Age ain't nothing but a number... Hii inathibitisha mitizano na tabia za kundi hili....jinsi wanavyonwa na jamii na wanavyojiona wenyewe

    Mengine tutawasema lakini nani asiyetaka kwenda na wakati... apotee wakati anaweza kuingia kwenye mtandao akapata atakavyo...mpaka huko kwenye picha nyeti ??! wakati hana mtu wa kumliwaza au wa kumjulia hali zaidi ya upweke wake? FAINALI UZEENI. MECHI HII INAYAKIWA ITAYARISHWE...

    We pimbi, kusema senior tu haitoshi kuleta maana uliyokusudia. Sema senior citizens, na ujumbe unafika sawia. Niliposoma awali nilidhani ni mabosi
