Good luck.


Thank you. So far you have been the most helpful. I will go look there.

"....But as I stated before. The only social websites on there are dating sites...".

 

I sure don't know what you're reading.

 

That link shows health, money, consumer, jobs (all geared for seniors), and other senior forums such as 'seniorforums.com' or 'seniorchatroom.com'. There are only a couple of dating sites shown.

Thank you. I read that one earlier before I posted my question here. But as I stated before. The only social websites on there are dating sites.

 

I'll just keep looking. Thank you anyway.

You have to define what you want out of 'social media'. AARP, this site, is considered social media. 

     Facebook was intended for social networking. That is, if your friends and family are on it, they are posting comments/pictures etc., and you would do the same in order to see what's going on with your friends and family.

     If you are looking for other sites that feature seniors posting, similar to this site, look at this article:

(just copy and put in search in your browser)

Looking for a different social media

Message 7 of 7

I hope this is the right section on the forum for this. Quite frankly Im getting sick of Facebook. It is becoming crude and rude and cutthroat. They say its getting more geared towards Seniors but honestly all I am seeing is more and more disrespect for Seniors. Does anyone know of other social media sites out there gears more towards Seniors. I have seen a few but they looked more like dating sites. I have no interested in dating. I am quite happy being a widow. I will never find anyone as good as my husband was. He was my best friend.
