Summary
"'Social Media for Family Historians' introduces more than 25 websites that can help family historians to communicate, share and collaborate with other family historians and with their own families. It covers new ways to communicate such as Sykpe and Second Life; social networking sites such as Facebook and GenealogyWise; blogs and microblogs such as Twitter; sites for sharing family trees such as Ancestry and MyHeritage; sites for sharing photos and videos such as Flickr and YouTube; and community information sites such as wikis and social bookmarking. You will learn what social media is; why you would want to use it; what the risks are, and how to avoid them. Easy-to-follow guides on how to get started with Facebook and blogging - two of the most useful forms of social media - can help you take the plunge."--Back cover
