In the beginning, technology fields were the sole remain of self-professed nerds and what they were doing appeared to the rest of the world to be essentially magic. It is of little surprise then that the technology industry has set itself apart from other industries in a number of ways, including its approach to marketing products and services. Below are some of the now ubiquitous marketing techniques that, for one reason or another, we wouldn’t have if it weren’t for the tech industry.

Viral Marketing
There is much debate as to when the first viral marketing campaign was launched and it is probably fair to say that what we now call vital marketing has always existed in some form. It took the modern technology industry to unleash its full potential, however.

How Technology is Healing Social Isolation for Seniors

Many seniors experience a deep sense of social isolation (this guy up here doesn’t mind though). This is due to a number of factors: they are no longer part of a workforce, family and friends have moved away, and it may be more difficult to leave the house to do the things they used to. In addition to sociological factors, seniors struggling with cognitive challenges or mobility issues find it difficult to connect with others, simply because it’s difficult to join a senior center or religious community and participate in activities.

Loneliness is a sense of grief due to lack of social connection. It creates psychological issues like depression and anxiety, as well as sedentary behaviors that increase health risks. If these are not addressed, a decline in cognitive abilities also occurs. While the ideal solution to heal loneliness would be to help seniors join a community where they feel a sense of connection, technology can help mitigate many of the risks of loneliness and the anguish of social isolation.

As seniors become more comfortable with the use of computers and Internet-connected devices and increasingly familiar with social media, they can engage in online communities and reconnect with family and friends.

Smartphones
Many seniors find smartphones bewildering. Moreover, they are continually evolving. Manufacturers make advances and add innovative features with every new model. For instance, earlier Android models of the Samsung Galaxy series did not have the need for much security because the technology was so new that hackers hadn’t figured out a way to exploit them. Since then, criminal-minded geeks have upped their game, but the latest Android devices have developed such sophisticated user authentication features that it is almost impossible for anyone else to use the phone.
