Social Media Mob

I suspect that the majority of the attendees at this week's Congress do not use Social Media. There was, however, a small group of active Tweeters and Bloggers who shared news and opinions about  Congress  happenings via Social Media. Sharing our experiences in real time via social media enhanced our  enjoyment of the Conference.

As the Official Blogger for the Conference I tried to encourage others to blog and tweet and endeavoured to so so myself.  Some of us had not previously met in person but we came together as good friends because of the communication we have had via various social media over the last couple of years. Over the the next few days I will compile and publish a list of links to all the posts written about Congress. It will be a valuable archive of reports for the future.

Thank you to the bloggers who joined with me to wear gaudy blogger beads during Congress.

I was pleased when Alona Tester from Gould suggested that the Geneabloggers at Congress gather for a group photo today.Thanks to Mr Geniaus who came over to the Convention Centre today to act as photographer.

The smaller beads actually get a bit hidden by the lanyards - perhaps we need something else, just don't suggest a Tshirt!
