I am 75 years old and my name is Maria. I am living in Romania and this internet thing is news for me. My children live far away and I was thinking about keeping in touch with them through email and Facebook and video call. This is why I am asking your opinion. Thank you very much for your time! (my niece translated the text)
You are lucky you have a niece around who helps you and teaches you using the internet. I have yahoo mail address and it is quite easy to use. I'm 65 years old and I had to learn everything alone about sending an email or using Facebook.
Gmail is really useful because you have all the free services not only the emailing system. Check it out.
I think Gmail is the best, then Yahoo and third is Hotmail.
Gmail is easy to use and so many free things you wouldn't think about to use but when the time comes there you are ready to write a document or make calculations in a Google sheet. Google Drive is also a magnificent service..
