Just because you didn’t grow up with social media, doesn’t mean it is too late to learn. If you are above the age of 20, it is more than likely that your parents didn’t grow up using the social media tools that we use today. This is about to change for them.
The use of social media allowed them to stay connected with their family members, and society as a whole because of their daily use of computers. Essentially, those who were taught how to use Facebook showed improvement in some aspects of cognitive function.
The research that was found in this study was presented at the annual meeting of the International Neuropsychological Society in Hawaii.
