Chat rooms for seniors over 50 have seen a huge increase in chatters recently, mostly due to the increase in ‘baby boomers’ who are on the internet.


75% of over 50 year olds now have access to the internet, either through a PC, tablet or smart phone.


Social networking online is no longer limited to teens and other youngsters; older people are finding that they can find friendship and even more without even leaving their home.


That isn’t to say that seniors over 50 are being confined to their homes and tied to online chat rooms, in fact quite the opposite is happening. Chat rooms are creating real friendships and people are meeting up in person with those who they may otherwise never have met.


Examples of these meetings can be seen in the Buzz50 Seniors Meets forum here.
