Abstract

The purpose of this exploratory study is to provide qualitative data on how senior citizens (SC) use their online social networks. The ages of the SCs in this study range from 60 to 78 years old. Survey forms were given to 40 senior citizens. From the same sample, 20 participated in focused interviews. The data characterized the social networking of SCs based on important discussion points on identity, privacy, ownership and authorship, credibility, and participation which are identified by James, et al. (2009) in their empirical study on New Digital Media ethics.
