CJOnline – “Boomers are also connecting to old favorite places through social media. David Lee King is the Digital Branch and Services manager at the Topeka Shawnee County Public Library. The library has 20 to 30 blogs that customers can comment on. It has a Facebook page and Twitter, YouTube and Flickr accounts. King said the biggest challenge he sees for boomers trying to adopt social media is understanding that it’s about connections with people. “The goal isn’t to interact with your computer. It’s to meet somebody,” King said. “That’s a hard jump for some people who aren’t used to these kinds of tools, but if you immerse yourself in it for a month or so, I think you’d probably understand.”
Great quotes DLK!
