News Coverage of My Recent Social Networking Presentation

You gotta love Google Alerts.  This morning one of my alerts (set for the word "geneabloggers") popped up in email and it was for an article in the Itasca Press (IL) about Facebook use among the over-50 set and my recent appearance at the Bloomingdale Public Library.

Entitled Baby Boomers Connect With Facebook, the article discusses the ways in which older Americans are utilizing this social media site to not just keep tabs on children and grand-children but also to connect with others including genealogists.

The article referenced my presentation Social Networking: New Horizons for Genealogists which I gave on July 14, 2010 in Bloomingdale, IL.  Included are some photos of me and the participants and I feel the story presents good coverage on the Facebook phenomenon among the Baby Boomers.
