AGING IN PLACE
Facebook Tv is a new application that is partnered with Netflix to create another new way for us to engage with others.
There are many of us out there who could benefit from socializing a little more, myself included. But we found there was a large population of people struggling with anxiety and depression but more as a result from their fights against osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is a disease that causes the continuous loss of bone mass overtime. While there is no cure, but can be managed with medicines, the anxiety of falling and possibly being bed-ridden for life is a real worry. It can cause isolation due to the fact they may not leave their homes for days at a time because the fear of falling.
Facebook Tv allows these people with osteoporosis an opportunity to have some social interaction on those hard days, by getting to video/audio chat with Facebook friends and even invite each other to watch their favorite shows or movies on Netflix.
