While younger generations may find it easy to adapt to the world of social isolation, some older people may find online socialisation more difficult. Due to the pandemic, many community groups such as clubs and societies have been interrupted, however regular social community groups are important to improve mood and for a creative outlet amongst older adults.
How can we move social activities online in a way that is not intimidating for people who aren't as accustomed to interacting online?
How we can help
Social Bunch alleviates the complexity of traditional social medias, by creating a space for community groups to interact on their own terms. By combining tricky apps and sites like group message boards, video calling and group scheduling, into one easy-to-access platform, we have made these facilities accessible to those intimidated by online socialisation. We have taken into account the needs and wants of older adults to build an app that provides a space for group activities without bombarding the user with options and fancy features, drawing inspiration from technologies that they are familiar with already to ease the learning curve.
