Games in Social Networks

I don't really understand all the hostility towards games in social networking sites. Aside from the annoyance of being told about all the gaming achievements of each person who plays games, which can be turned off even in Facebook, what is the problem with other people playing games? Games have always been a part of social interaction, and not just for children. Games are fun, and we all need some fun. We play cards, bridge, mah jong, chess, checkers and so on; not to mention sports like … [Read more...]

Twitter for family historians

What is Twitter? Twitter is what is known as a microblog. You can send and receive messages, called tweets. A tweet can be a maximum of 140 characters. Tweets can be seen, and searched, by everyone unless you restrict them only to your friends.

Unlock The Past History and Genealogy Sydney Roadshow Day 1

I had a great time at the Unlock The Past History and Genealogy Sydney Roadshow today.

Louis is Director of the National Institute of Genealogical Studies, a  supplier of online … [Read more...]

Top 10 Social Media Sites for Family Historians

Here are 10 social media sites that are not directly related to family history (except one) but are nevertheless important for communicating, sharing and collaborating with other family … [Read more...]

Exploring Second Life

This post was originally written as part of the 52 Weeks to Better Genealogy Challenge, Week 38. I gave Second Life a go a few months ago. It's a very rich environment, with lots to do. Some members of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) were holding meetings and other activities there, which is why I decided to check it out. Most of their activities take place in the United States, which is far away from where I am. It's a steep learning curve, though, which I decided I … [Read more...]

Facebook???

I am a recent convert to Facebook. It's a web application that I thought was used by teenagers but it seems I was wrong because when I asked my teenage nieces they didn't know what I was talking about. They use MySpace. Facebook seems to be used by young adults and older adults. It's a networking site for keeping in contact with people and letting them know how you are and what you are doing. Your contacts are called friends and they have to agree to be your friend, so it keeps the spam … [Read more...]
