ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to suggest action directions for preventing social isolation and improving life satisfaction of the elderly by verifying the mediating effect of social capital in the relationship between the elderly's digital information self-efficacy and their life satisfaction. For this purpose, the 2022 digital information gap survey data were used to analyze the relationship between digital information self-efficacy, social capital, and the elderly's life satisfaction using SPSS 26.0 and AMOS 24.0. As a result, first, the elderly's digital information self-efficacy was found to have a positive (+) effect on life satisfaction. Second, the elderly's digital information self-efficacy was found to have a positive (+) effect on social capital. Third, the social capital of the elderly was found to have a positive effect on life satisfaction. Fourth, the social capital of the elderly was found to have an indirect mediating effect in the relationship between digital information self-efficacy and life satisfaction. Based on this, practical and policy measures were presented to revitalize digital information education that older people can apply in real life, develop a digital platform for forming online-based social capital, communities suited to the digital information capabilities of older people, and revitalize information groups.
