Thursday 25 March 2010

As a special start to 2010, attendees of previous Successful Ageing Seminars who had expressed interested in the Chancellor's Circle group were invited to a special workshop on Social Networking. This was an invitation only event.

Jenny Clift, Digital Media Officer, Marketing and Development Unit at UniSA explained the concept of social networking as "getting to meet all of your friend's friends and their friends and so on!" Social networking opens up opportunities to widen your network and potentially find people who share your interests, or can help you find a house, a car, or even a new job. Jenny demonstrated how to set up a Facebook page - a very popular social networking site. Interestingly, it is not only the teens, and 18-35 age group that are using the social media sites. In the past year there has been a significant increase in the 65+ age group signing up for Facebook pages.
