Grandparents Gone Wired

While 77 percent of older adults have a cell phone, just 18 percent feel comfortable learning to use the device.

Nev Schulman and Max Joseph from the hit MTV series Catfish: The TV Show are encouraging their fans to teach older adults how to text and use emojis in a new PSA.

"Working on Catfish, Max and I see firsthand just how much people use social media to try and connect with others," said Nev Schulman of MTV's 'Catfish: The TV Show.' "Grandparents Gone Wired is a great opportunity to help older people feel more connected."
