Leveraging Social Media to Expand TxGenWeb's Reach

In today's always-plugged-in-to-the-Internet environment, learning the ins and outs of social media has become necessary for organizations to expand their reach to as many people as possible. Further, so many people are coming to genealogy and family history online and through subscription sites, and they are not aware of volunteer-supported websites like TxGenWeb that can help them with their family history research. This presentation is designed to explain the ins and outs of the various social media platforms so the TxGenWeb Project can leverage social media to increase their efforts to help as many people as possible research their Texas-based family history.
