What problems do elderly face while using technologies?Add Answer
When Instagram entered the mainstream, many top models and celebrities decided not to use it because they didn’t fully understand the platform and its needs – because they believed that Twitter and Facebook were enough for them. (They all did eventually get on Instagram!)
When Twitch came, many gamers didn’t much care about the platform – because the platform was new and inconvenient to their comfort level.
Heck, when computer and even internet came, so many people believed that they are just fad – because, in reality, computer and internet interrupted their lifestyle comfort.
The same is the reason – the biggest reason perhaps – why senior people face problems while using technology. They are reluctant. They don’t want technology to disrupt their comfort level. They don’t think they are going to need this technology.
Yes, senior people do have physical and psychological limitations when it comes to learning something new. Many can’t see properly. Many old people can’t coordinate hand and eyes. Many of them can’t remember.
