Starting the new year on the right foot, on January 13th FBWEV held a class on the challenges and opportunities of using social media. Pam Holland of the firm Tech Moxie spoke to more than 30 Villagers about the pros and cons of opening a Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. or Vine Co account.
Far from being a luddite, the Foggy Bottom West End Village set up a Facebook and Twitter account at its inception and has an active blog for all to view. Members learned how to “test use” social media and how to choose a format that suits their needs.
The importance of keeping up with their grandchildren is paramount to Villagers, so they appreciated learning how social media can enhance their daily lives and keep them connected to family and friends.
