Abstract

Sustaining remote communication across generations is a continuing problem, due to the increasing popularity of online communication. Participation in online platforms is advantageous for seniors wishing to connect with younger generations, yet reciprocity on these platforms is a challenge for older adults. Barriers include the cognitive overload of existing mainstream interfaces and a lack of engaging content. In this paper we propose Pinteresce, a tool leveraging family-generated reminiscence prompts to encourage seniors' participation in the online community, Pinterest. The system provides an intuitive interface for communicating across age groups to promote reciprocal engagement with online content.
