Baby Boomers using social media! My mom is onboard!
21 March 2017 | by huggibearSee all my reviews

It represents an idea of what some of the baby boomers might experience while using today's social media (facebook). I thought it was cute and funny! Two British female actresses talk about how to pursue a date with a baby boomer gentleman. What method of communication does Judi Dench end up using to get through to the gentleman? Watch and see! I like it when the baby boomers know something about technology. It gives them lots to do and keeps their minds active. I know my mom won't ever have dementia or Alzheimer's because of knowing her technology at the age of 70. Keeping our whits about us as we age could be very beneficial and the technology industry definitely supports us in that way with lots to choose from.
