Lan: That's interesting! Great to see that more and more older people are beginning to use new technologies.
Nam: Well, my grandparents and most of their friends still read print newspapers, listen to the radio, watch TV or DVDs. I think they may find it challenging to learn how to use the Net.
Lan: I agree, but they can always find someone to walk them through the process. I think the problem is that many older people may not understand the benefits of online information.
Nam: Yes, but once they start using the Internet they can also connect with friends and family members any time.
Lan: That's right. The benefits are enormous! I'd be lost without my social networking sites. It would be impossible for me to do my school projects without the Internet.
Nam: Personally, I think you are addicted to social media and rely too much on the Internet. You can still use other media such as print newspapers, magazines and books, or radio and television for different purposes.
