Abstract

Based on the experiences achieved during the SoMedAll project's processes it can be stated that Owela is a useful tool to share information and to support discussions among older people. It can be also motivating. As one example of this motivation is that after the first stage of discussion some active participants opened their own closed Facebook site for the group "Vanhat Ketut" (Old Foxes). Conversations and partnership with end users has been helpful to solve ethical questions if any has showed up. End users have emphasised that they are eager to use social media based services if they are beneficial and create some extra value for their daily living and supports living in their own homes or departments.
