Fortunately, for those of us with grey hair, and a preference for fewer emails and more privacy, the internet offers many alternative networking sites.
In order of (our) preference, these are –
- LinkedIn – A network for business professionals with a very large base of participants and focused on business matters.
- YouTube – Another large network with the unusual quirk of being strictly video presentations.
- Facebook – The biggest of the social networks focused on a younger audience but fast becoming the hunting ground for corporate promotions.
- Twitter – Not one of our favourites but certainly a player in terms of audience.
