In this study we analyzed the interaction between active seniors and mobile phone use. Results were obtained from a survey. Participants were 165 active seniors enrolled in university programs for seniors, most of whom owned a mobile phone and used it for basic functions such as making
calls, creating a contact list, checking the time, and sending text messages. The mobile phone did not have a social expansion function (that is, to extend their social networks) for these people; but it did provide them with social support by allowing them to keep in touch with their relatives.
It also made them feel secure, free, and independent.
