To tweet or not to tweet — That’s my dilemma

Oh, dear. I guess it is time I learned to tweet. To me, Twitter seems like a bunch of 140-character shouting. Then again, I thought Facebook was a waste of time until I discovered how it could help me with my genealogy research.

That is why I have registered for the Federation of Genealogical Societies’ next free webinar, Capturing the Community: Using Twitter to Connect, Engage and Educate in Genealogy. It will bepresented by Jen Baldwin on March 31, at 8:00 p.m., Eastern time. According to the webinar description, “Twitter can be an incredible networking and educational tool for genealogists and societies. How do we make the best of it? Learn the why and how to start using Twitter to its fullest potential.”

This webinar may also be an opportunity to learn how to engage young people. And who knows? I may become a convert.

More information and the link to register is available on this page.
