    "I used to love Facebook. I could find old friends I'd lost track of, who'd moved away or whatever. But then Facebook started loading the screen down with ads. I could never see what my friends were posting, what they were talking about. They couldn't see my posts. Just ads, stuff from companies, stuff I don't have any interest in. Then the privacy thing that's been in the news, and I'm thinking I need to delete my account. Why does everything useful turn into a scam?"

    "I've just gotten into using Skype again, since my boyfriend lives 30 minutes away so we Skype when we can't meet up in person, and since I've been receiving AARP mail, I probably qualify as a senior and I can say the app is great for keeping in touch with people. It's easy to use, quality is great with both video and audio and it's really easy to setup to. "

    "I love meetup! You use it for meeting new people who share your common interests. And make up a meetup among the users of the app. Meetup can be about literally anything, like those who can't sleep at night and are walking around in zombie costumes at 3 in the morning can set up a meet up using this app!!!"

    "This is a really good app for the seniors of our country. They keep in touch with others and ear at the same time. This makes life way easier for them. I would say that every senior who uses facebook should give this a shot and see how it goes."
