Starting from the assumption that the world observed by us is a continuous interaction be- tween social networks where everything is connected and exists in relation to the other, it is possible to hypothesize that new forms of online interaction are also able to perform func- tions of "care". The pandemic experience has highlighted the therapeutic role of the concept of proximity and social relations, as was already evident with the introduction of Sonetness in the ESA model. In an extremely complex framework, the contribution of social relations to the theme of health understood as complete bio-psycho-social well-being is also inter- twined with a hyper-individualistic and economist approach to our daily lives. This contri- bution analyzes the relational and cultural experiences of people in the third and fourth age, which emerged from the use of new generation oral social media, such as Clubhouse and Twitter Spaces, starting from Rogers’ "follow the medium" using a netnographic approach to make up for the lack of public datasets.

Keywords: elderly; orality; social media; methodology; qualitative approach; care.
