Abstract [en]

The ambition to make all kinds of societal services, public as well as commercial

ones, more effective and accessible via online applications is reoccurring

all over the western world. To a large extent, such ambitions hold the promise

to make citizens’ everyday lives easier, but they are, however, also problematic

in that they presuppose a number of important prerequisites. They presuppose

widespread access to ICT-applications of a standard that is fast and solid

enough to manage to make users actually make use of these services. They further

presuppose that all citizens and consumers, who are the inscribed users of

these applications, have enough competences and skills to make use of them.

Hence, there is an obvious risk that people who do not have access are being

left behind in the transformations of these services from analogue to digital.

In this chapter we attend to these risks by paying attention to contemporary

patterns of access to, and use of, digital applications. The chapter is inspired

by domestication theory and looks into and analyses different patterns of ICT

access and use among Swedish senior citizens, with the following questions in

mind: What ICT-devices do various groups of senior citizens have access to?

To what extent do they make everyday use of them? For what purposes do they

use these devices? The empirical material has been derived from a pilot survey

which was conducted from August to September 2015.
