Social Networking for 50+

UK-based Saga Group recently launched a social networking site called Saga Zone aimed at people over 50. In a BBC News report, experts indicate that the technology will help them retirees keep in touch with their families, but that face-to-face communication will still remain their preferred method of communication. Over 13,000 people signed up for the free service in a recent four-month trial. The US-based Eons has been playing in this arena for far longer. Their site now boasts its own age-relevant internet search engine, as well as a longevity calculator, online brain games, and an online tool for capturing your life story.
