Social Media Scoop for Seniors is the official blog for the SeniorNet community.  The purpose of this blog is to provide basic and relevant information about social media for seniors who want to learn more about social technologies and how it can enhance their lives. With thousands of social media tools, websites, apps, widgets, and gizmos available on the Internet, we understand it may all seem a bit overwhelming at first, which is why our blog posts contain practical, easy-to-understand, “geek-speak-free” information and instructions.

To give you an idea of how social media has impacted people’s lives, watch this short 2 1/2 minute video: Social Media Revolution 2011
