With the advent of the digital age, the new media system is increasingly mature and perfect, and is widely used in daily life. The elderly groups are facing many problems and dilemmas in the rapid development of the Internet, and typical phenomena such as "digital differentiation" and "digital barriers" have emerged. It is a crucial issue to integrate the elderly into today's convenient society in the digital age, communicate emotionally with the help of new media, and bridge the "digital divide" through media links. There is a need for a concerted effort by all parties, including government-led, family participation and media guidance, to bridge the deprived media perception of the elderly group.
