Given the current economic situation in the world, we older workers want to stay as marketable as we can when it comes to keeping or finding employment. I found an article that I want to pass along to you. I’ve copied an important paragraph here:
Embrace social media. While younger executives may not be able to match your experience, they instinctively understand technology and the role social media plays in today’s business world. Executives who pretend that Facebook and Twitter have nothing to do with them do so at their own peril. I strongly urge every executive to have a LinkedIn profile with a professional headshot that clearly communicates, “I get LinkedIn” and the value of networking. While Facebook participation is more optional, I recommend that executives maintain a Facebook page, whether they use it or not. It is simply another way of staying current. Even if you don’t understand social media, don’t denigrate it at every opportunity. The people who say, “I’m not really good at this technology thing,” place themselves firmly in the “old fogies” category.
The article has a number of other good points for “old fogies.” You can find the article at
