Welcome to the premier issue of Granny Carolynn’s Newsletter. I am excited about giving you the tools to interface with social media by launching the Grandmother’s Guides to Social Media. Grandmother's Guides are a series of easy to follow online tutorials. The lessons are designed to make technology your friend and take the fear out of using social networking. Lessons will include FaceBook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Google Hangouts, YouTube, and many more.
This endeavor is dedicated to the memory of my mother, Patricia Marcus, who passed away last year at the age of 87. She was an amazing woman whose example demonstrated to her family and friends the joy which a lifetime learner receives. Receiving her first computer at the age of 70, Mom decided it should be a laptop so she could keep in touch with her friends and family while she traveled. She became an active e-mailer, explored the internet, used MS Word, and budgeted on Excel. The social media world had not exploded yet. As it did, Mom became intimidated by it. She did learn how to text, to the delight of her grandchildren, who declared her to be the coolest grandmother ever.
As her grandchildren grew, they were very active on social media, especially FaceBook, Instagram, and Pinterest. It really is wonderful how it keeps the cousins as close as they are living in many places around the country. I keep up with my children, nieces and nephews, by following them in the social medias that they are using. Mom’s local grandchildren set her up on Facebook. Sadly, she was afraid of using it. She missed out on seeing numerous pictures of her grandchildren and great-grandson.
My mission is to teach anyone who wants to stay in contact with their children, grandchildren, friends, and family, how to make the most of social media communication. Please join me on this journey for yourself or pass it on to someone you know and love who could benefit from Granny Carolynn's weekly FREE newsletters containing valuable tips, videos, cheat-sheets, and interesting stories. Become a social media star in the eyes of your family. I look forward to sharing with you.
