Digital Disqualification, Digital Suffering, Digital Reliance : The Case of French Retired People over Sixty Years Old

Abstract : Occidental society tends to be increasingly dependent on digital technologies, even for basic activities (socialization, work, administrative tasks, etc.). For instance, since 2016 in France, the tax return must be submitted online. However, does this evolution consider those who lack the required capacity? How to measure the digital divide? To explore this issue, we study the case of older adults with low technological knowledge and skills. This population presents more difficulties in using digital devices than the young generation because of the effect of digital divides and the lack of digital literacy. This situation has the potential to produce some (digital) suffering, making this population feel outdated and excluded from the social entity.
