Online photo-sharing by people aged over 60 years and effects on social isolation and loneliness

The project will address the interlinked issues of ageing, loneliness, social isolation and wellbeing with participating in the creative activity of taking photographs and sharing them online via email, photo-sharing applications (e.g. Google Photos, iCloud) and social media websites (e.g. Flickr, Instagram, blipfoto.com). In this project, we will focus on websites such as on Flickr, Instagram and blipfoto.com that are specifically designed to facilitate interactions with others, beyond the circle of family and friends, through shared pictures and words.
