The Rise of Social Media Usage Among Seniors

We don’t usually think about seniors and social media going hand in hand, but did you know that the number of older adults who use Facebook and other social media platforms is rising? According to a survey we conducted about seniors and technology usage, this is true, with 48% of senior citizens using Facebook frequently.

As Facebook use among seniors and Baby Boomers increases, what can you do to ensure you’re connecting, generating leads and showcasing your services, not just among older adults but for those who are caring for them as well? One of our client-partners with locations throughout the northeast found out, thanks to our customized social media campaigns.

Read on to learn more about how you can take advantage of social networking sites such as Facebook to connect with older users, friends and family members.

The Goal

‘Our client-partner wanted to increase brand awareness and event registrations among their memory care communities. To do this, we utilized their Facebook pages to promote their communities, events and day-to-day activities

The Results
