As a nation, we’ve come to think of 65 as old, probably because of its standing as the legal retirement age. But honestly, how many people are actually retiring at 65? How many can afford to?
One thing is for sure, this generation’s 65, isn’t the same as the one before it. These sexagenarian’s are still getting things done and 53% of them are doing it on the internet.
According new data from the Pew Internet and American Life Project, this is the first time usage in the over 65 group has crossed the 50% mark. And once they’re online, they stay there, with 70% saying they use the internet on a typical day.
