London Girl Will Make You Speechless. London : Apart from the physical impact of the internet, mental impacts are also a big concern in the elderly ones. These mental effects and results often go un noticed, and many wouldn’t believe that its because of the internet that they shall initiate. Not saying that all stuff on the internet shall effect the mentality of a person in a bad way. But there is stuff like addictive games and other catchy stuff on the internet that one can get attached to. Old people are more vulnerable to mental problems arising in them than young people are.
Most old people also refrain from learning to use the internet because they feel its too late or something. Today’s parents and grandparents would think they are past their age, and that the internet is for young kids people. Most people also avoid the usage of internet, smart phones, modern day devices, because they have passed so much of their lives when such things were only dreamt off. So besides the lack of knowledge, its also the feeling of not being welcomed that might incur the feeling of not using the internet in old people.
Many senior people also lack technical abilities, like not being much familiar with the technicalities of how the computer works, the hardware, the software, like not being familiar with why we use browsers and certain softwares. Theres so much more to a computer than just a screen and a cpu. What can a computer not do these days? Nothing, and the enormity of the ability of the computers might be a massive psychological down for the seniors who probably would feel they have a lot to learn, hence they back off.
