The Internet is modifying the lives of people around the world. Although many talk about the democratization of knowledge and information, differences remain among users as older netcitizens are under-represented and less involved. We use national and representative U.S. data, the Current Population Survey, to show age-based differences. We complement our analysis with web-based data, the Georgia Tech World Wide Web User Surveys, to show Internet characteristics and trends by age for netcitizens. Results show that older users compose a lower share of Internet users than that of the total U.S. population; however, once they join the ranks of avid Internet users, older netcitizens are similar to their younger counterparts.
