Does your church struggle to connect along generational lines? Then listen to this.
Mary Madden, Senior Research Specialist for the Pew Research Center's Internet and American Life Project, and author of the report, suggests that:
"social media has the potential to bridge generational gaps. There are few other spaces - online or offline - where tweens, teens, sandwich generation member, grandparents, friends and neighbors regularly intersect and communicate across the same network." She also notes that "email is still the primary way that older users maintain contact with friends, families and colleagues, but many older users now rely on social network platforms to help manage their daily communications."
