Georgia Kiwanis Web 2.0

The Georgia Kiwanis are in Web 2.0. Web 2.0 is where people share information back and forth and not just information fro people but they are also putting it out there. Web 2.0 also happens to be chosen last month as the 1 millionth word in English.

The Georgia Kiwanis now has a Facebook page where you can share information and share pictures. I will try to keep monitored to keep inappropriate items off the page and remove members (friends) if needed. The page is at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Georgia-Kiwanis/77529748268

We also have a listserv account where you can join and share information with other members or ask questions and hopefully others will share their experiences. You can sign up for it at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/gakiwanis/join You will then receive e-mails from members. I have set it as monitored to keep spammers out so I will approve people joining and their first message. I will assume requests to join are from Kiwanians unless suspicious looking. If first message is spam I will remove the member.

We have added a Twitter account so that you, other Kiwanians and interested people can follow the Georgia Kiwanis. Tweets will be posted by the webmaster (me), the governor, governor-elect and Alexa. You can now follow the GeorgiaKiwanis account on Twitter (www.twitter.com). Our account name is one word not two. Kiwanis International also has an Twitter account and send tweets frequently.

See you at convention and on the web.
