Americans age 50-plus increasingly are using social media, and AARP is tapping into that trend to hear what people have to say about Social Security, caregiving, transportation, livable communities, retirement planning and other issues.

AARP South Carolina has an active Facebook and Twitter presence that shares interesting and news unique to the Palmetto state. If you have been afraid to take the leap, let us help you. AARP South Carolina is recruiting volunteers who use and want to learn Facebook and Twitter to encourage people to share ideas about these issues online.

A 2012 study by the nonprofit Pew Research Center showed that while people 65-plus are the age group least likely to start using the Internet, they are enthusiastic users once they’re online. Interested in volunteering? Email or call 1-866-389-5556 toll-free.
