CBC News asked readers to help defy the common misperception that social media is a realm of the young.

Our community team wanted to hear our readers' stories of social media seniors: people over the age of 60 who love to tweet, laugh at the latest memes or use Skype to keep in touch with friends and family.

Here is a collection of some of the best responses that came in, showcasing a very digitally savvy Canadian senior population that has no qualms about making use of technology and social media.
