So Paper

A special newspaper for people gets closer with elderly family members who are not familiar with social networking.
Service Design​
New York, United States

Social media such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter play an indispensable part for networking to our younger generation. However, on the other hand, the elder generation is less familiar with these online platforms. A statistic released in 2014 by Statista about the Age Distribution of Active Social Media Users Worldwide has revealed that 34 percent of Instagram users were between 25 and 34 years old; while there is only 3 percent of users were between 55 and 64 years old.

 

According to the "information gap" between different age groups, I came out an idea in regard to a special newspaper for people to get closer with elderly family members who are not familiar with social networking. 

 

So Paper is a conceptual service design for fun, but with empathy and consideration. In brief, it is a newspaper of social media. It will provide a physical newspaper form with selected online posts. Therefore the elderly can know more updates about their younger family members through the formate which they were used to.
