8) Social media

Social media may seem like a fun way to meet new people and play games to the younger generations, but to retirees it can be indispensable. Whether going on that life-long dream of a cross country drive, booking plane tickets or finding a unique ethnic restaurant, social media can provide the details and suggestions to make retirement easy and fun.

What many people don’t realize is that one of the biggest conflicts for retirees is the sense of loneliness and loss. Friends and relatives are getting older and passing on, leaving behind people who struggle to come to terms with their losses. However, social media presents retirees with a much needed command of their social life to help overcome those feelings of loneliness. Whether reacquainting themselves with past friends, or meeting new ones, social media can be a comfortable way to go back to your youth, or as social media experts believe, provide the mental health of socialization to increase your years.
