Even if you’re ageing and housebound, the Internet is an invaluable pathway that can enable you to stay connected to the outside world. You can stay in contact with friends and family through emails and video calls, no matter how far away they might live. News sites can keep you up to date with events on the local or international scene, and blogs can let you know all about new developments in your personal interests. Social network sites provide another way to stay in touch with your friends, and even allow you to make new ones.
