International migration can have an enormous impact on social relationships in older age. However, new technologies have altered how migrants can maintain transnational social bonds. In this study we describe a/ the use of technology by older Chinese migrants living in Australia to maintain relationships with family and friends overseas; and b/how this relates to feelings of loneliness, depression and social network size. Loneliness was measured using the De Jong Gierveld scale, depression by the Geriatric Depression Scale and social network size by the Lubben Social Network Scale. Preliminary results show that the most frequently used technology for keeping in touch with family and friends overseas was instance messaging services such as Wechat which was used by 43% of participants on a daily basis and by another 25% of participants on a weekly basis. Other common forms of technology used to maintain relationships were social networking sites (35% used every day) and video calls (34% used every day). Only greater frequency of emailing or voice calls were associated with lower scores for loneliness, but a greater frequency of emailing, voice calls, instant messaging and using social network sites were all associated with lower scores for depressive symptoms. A greater frequency of emailing, video calls, instant messaging and social networking were also associated with higher social network scores for overseas social networks. In summary, new technology appears useful in maintain social bonds across distance and may be an important way to reduce feelings of loneliness and depression in older migrants.
