Why I tweet.....
Last night my 15 year old daughter asked me a question then responded to a text message on her smart phone while I was answering. When she had finished she looked up and said, ‘Pardon?’ And recently I have been in one-on-one meetings with people who constantly glanced at their smart phone during our conversation or worse, interrupted it to answer a call.
I have extolled the virtues of the Flipboard ap to many of my clients over the last couple of years, but still find many who haven’t tried it. It is the best ap I have ever used. It pushes any sites of interest to me that are available in that format – and for free. Please take a look if it’s not already on your phone or tablet.
According to research by the Pew Research Center, 53% of American adults ages 65 and older use the internet or email – this marks the first time that such a high percentage of seniors are going on line. Source: American Training and Development March 2013, p19
