Today and for years, the old people have invaded our favorite applications and installed themselves without any embarrassment. Whether it is social networks, games or merchant sites, they are everywhere and do not go unnoticed. To get an idea, we made a ranking of the applications most squatted by the elderly according to our personal observations (reliable source).
1. Friends from before
Friends from before is the site for old people par excellence and that's normal since young people absolutely do not want to find the people with whom they went to college. We know thanks to Facebook that they have 4 children, a Dacia and a house in Morbihan and quite frankly, this information is more than enough.
2. Candy Crush
Candy Crush is the favorite game of the darons and they are often very strong since they spend at least 3 hours a day. If you play this damn game, you have surely already crossed the profile of "Sandrine89512" or "Chantal-Epinal-48" and that is completely normal. Candy Crush is now an application not recommended for people under 45, just like Ruzzle or 2048.
3 . WhatsApp
WhatsApp was very useful in the days when we did not have an unlimited phone plan (and when Messenger did not yet exist) but today the app serves you mainly to communicate with your grandparents. There are plenty of crazy people on WhatsApp , your uncle beauf who sends not funny memes on the family group for example, but the application has mainly been neglected because that it is a bit rotten. Who had the idea to automatically save the received photos, seriously?
Facebook is the favorite social network of old people and that's good because it's is probably the most suitable for them. You can post anything and everything, complain about the group in your town, sell itemswho are hanging out and wish all their family's birthdays. The average age is bound to be very high on Facebook since no one born after 2000 has an account. Why is that ? Because their parents are on it obviously.
TripAdvisor is a paradise for the elderly since the goal is to tell their stories, congratulate people and complain. restaurant, you are always happy to come across the detailed commentary from Patrick who A-DO-RÉ the place and the cuisine.t they're there anyway.
On Linkedin, there are only two types of people: students in private schools looking for an internship and dynamic quinquas who tell interview anecdotes about them. 'hiring. These are the most dangerous because they are on Linkedin for fun and not for interest. They are often obnoxious, address their "network" with big tirades and adore the new initiatives of the start-up nation.
Do you need a half-full Panini album, gaudy placemats or a bunch of DVDs that aren't even scratched? You will find all this on the compte Leboncoin of an elderly person. If you think that you are abusing by selling your ugly clothes for 3 € on Vinted, take a look at Leboncoin and you will understand that the old people have no limits: they sell everything and anything and that's good because there will always be someone who is interested.
You don't often see old people on YouTube because they are rarely highlighted in trends but yet, they are there. Just like the 12-year-old children who help you with Photoshop, the old people are on the platform to help their neighbors with tutorials. How to tie a tie? Hang a frame on a load-bearing wall? Unclog a sink? Lovely seniors are here to teach you about life and you couldn't be more grateful.
For a few years now, old people have been on Instagram, but unlike Facebook, their presence remains discreet. The account of an old man is recognizable by the themes of the photos: flowers in the garden, the cat doing something cute and children smiling in front of a pretty landscape. On the other hand, old people love to post comments everywhere and identify their loved ones. Who wants to win an iPhone?
10. TikTok and Twitch
Even if they are still only a very small minority, the old ones are now present on TikTok. They joke their children, tell anecdotes and create stories.scene to say the least original. On Twitch, we've seen more TV hosts and former presidents than anonymous seniors so far, but be patient.
If you have a passion for the aging population, you probably know that old guys do better than us a bunch of stuff (like voting right) and they obviously deserve our admiration.
