Senior Americans (people aged 65 and older) are adopting the world of technology in greater numbers than ever before -- but not too quickly. A new report by the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project, "Older Adults and Technology Use," shows a 6% increase from 2012 in online usage among older Americans, totaling 59%. Additionally, the report found 77% of older adults now have a cellphone, an 8% rise over last year's figures. Among older adults who do use the Internet, 46% use social media sites, which is well below the 73% national average among adult Internet users.
