Maybe you think you’re as comfortable in the digital world as the next person. But does your behavior, even your e-mail address, out you as a digital dinosaur? It may if . . .

. . . You think mobile phones are for calling people, and you have not “set up’’ texting on your phone.

. . . A party invitation with an address but no directions confuses you (a dead giveaway that the GPS revolution has passed you by, or you don’t know how to use Google Maps).

. . . The Anthony Weiner scandal introduced you to Twitter.

. . . You have an AOL e-mail address or a joint e-mail address with your spouse.

. . . You sincerely believe that people still listen to voice-mail messages.
