    This demonstration presents a storytelling application specifically designed for older adults to share stories and thoughts. Studies claim that older adults commonly have dificulties in engaging with online social networks [1], but increased social inclusion and sense of wellbeing has been observed in those who engage [2]. While following a user-centered design approach, we have developed an HTML5 device- independent and intuitive social web application which addresses older adults' specific needs and age-related impairments, allowing them to connect to their friends and family through storytelling.
