Social Media Tools for Genealogy: #NGS2013 Links

Wednesday afternoon marks my first of three presentations given here at #NGS2013 and I wanted to share some of the links with my readers who are not at the conference.

The main point of this presentation is to remember that social media is about:

  • Sharing
  • Networking
  • Curating
  • Education

There's so many websites that allow you to do this. It's important to try them out and see which ones help you with your genealogical goals.

Are you using Rebel Mouse to follow #NGS2013?

This is an impressive number of links! I'm going to copy the URL for your post. I'm just wondering -- how do you get around to all of them on a regular basis?? It must be a full-time job . . . : ))
