MIAMI (PRWEB) February 20, 2018
Senior dating is seeing a surge in the active members, and the number of couples created over the past several years. A few generations ago, dating was not only frowned upon, but it was next to impossible to try and build a relationship with several different people over the course of one’s life. Most people had one to two partners, and stayed widowed or divorced for life, but the steady rise of technological advancements is breaking down the barriers of dating for seniors and is kicking loneliness to the curb once and for all.
According to CNN Tech, two-thirds of US seniors are active internet users, and just over 42 percent say they use smartphones. Things like income, education, and age all play a role in senior tech adoption, and 1 in 10 older individuals say they go online "almost constantly". Social media use among older Americans is increasing steadily. Since 2013, the number of seniors who use social networks has increased by 7 points, from 27 percent to 34 percent, and younger seniors are more likely to use social media than older seniors.
The case for seniors using the web to keep in touch and meet new people is as strong as ever, and platforms such as Senior Next have noticed this trend. They keep popping up like mushrooms, enticing seniors to join them with intriguing interfaces, easy-to-use features, and affordable or free monthly memberships. By 2060, the number of Americans ages 65 and older is expected to double from 46 million today to 98 million, and the number of services offered to seniors is expected to follow suit, with digital dating being no different.
