Have you ever wanted to be a Tweeter on Twitter? Have you heard of Facebook friends and want some of your own? Is there anyone over the age of 30 still left on Myspace? To answer these questions and others like them, the Weston Branch will be having the program Intro To Social Networking. It will be on Monday September 20th at 7:00pm.
When Twitter first hit the social media scene, I must admit that I thought it was the most ridiculous thing I’d ever heard of. I wondered; Who has the time to broadcast what they are doing every minute of the day?
We're a social species. Our survival has been highly dependent on our interactions with one another. Social networking is little more than an application of this instinct in a new medium: the Internet. In the good old days, we had chat rooms. Ah, the MSN days. I think I've finally reached the age where I can be assured that at least a handful of people won't know what I'm talking about. That's ok. Take my word for it. It was a highly addictive and simultaneously chaotic way to spend one's time.
