America's Seniors Are Getting Tech Savvy

Posted: Updated:

America's seniors are getting more tech savvy.

A Pew Research study finds about 60-percent of seniors go online, up six percent from last year. And younger seniors are even more connected with 74-percent of people ages 65 to 69 going online.

The study found once seniors got an internet connection at home they began  to use it frequently. Nearly all surveyed agreed that the internet makes it easier to find information than in the past.

The poll also found 77-percent of seniors have a cell phone, and that's up from 69-percent just a year ago.
