Format: Paperback
Social Networking for Genealogists could also have been featured in our 'Computer Shelf' section, but is reviewed here for its fine guide to applying social network services to genealogical searching. It describes the social networks available on line, considers how they can be used by genealogists, and tells how to share information, photos and videos with family and friends. From blogs and wikis to Facebook, this shows how to use these social networking tools for family history research and is a key acquisition for any genealogist's collection!

I found the information very helpful, but I rather imagine someone well versed in social networking might find it rather obvious. For someone like me learning from the get go, I needed all the basics the author explained so well.

Although a small book, this little volume packs a lot of punch. There were so many points of reference I wanted to check out, that it took me a long time to go through it. Drew Smith really knows his stuff. His podcast in quite informative, as well.
