The implications for our members interested in easy ways to keeping the finger on the pulse is
that Social Media is no longer an option, it is becoming a must. Business, of course, has little choice since the public expects them to have a presence and from the point of view of a business the integration into their marketing is well under way.
Another change is the growth in mobile traffic, more and more people acquire the socalled smartphones, i.e. connected to the internet, so businesses as well as SeniorNets need websites that work on both the desktop computer and the mobiles, be they tablets or smartphones.
When we get our heads around this Social Media thing we find that there are more than Facebook out there, there is Twitter for the brief sentences, and Instagram for the photos and there is Google + , and the
images are becoming top content and have the widest reach of any on Social Media.
You, dear Kapiti SeniorNet reader, have certainly heard about YouTube for one, and most likely you have watched a number of videos or played some of the thousands of music videos, all uploaded for your enjoyment or edification. There are also podcasts to be played and their number will grow likewise. Their advantage is that you can listen and work on something else at the same time, and claim that you are multi-tasking.
Even Kapiti SeniorNet has succumbed and joined Facebook, do go there and take a look, and if you like the page please ‘like’ it by clicking on the ‘Like’ icon. We need all the likes we can get to help spread the word about SeniorNet.
