The baby boomers generation is quickly changing the way people look at retirement as advances in medical science and technology have allowed them to be healthy enough to take on new adventures as well as pro-longing their lifespan by about 20 years.
More than half of the baby boomers in America have computers and social media accounts as a means to keep in touch with family and friends, this has opened up a range of options for retired persons to still make money and do things that they have always dreamed of.
