Senior Planet may look like a small website (with great articles and events), but it's actually much bigger when you factor in all of the social networks that it's connected to. When you visit Senior Planet's page on one of these websites, you'll see how the Senior Planet community and library of information stretches farther than what would be easy or practical with just one website!
To visit one of Senior Planet's social media pages, go to www.seniorplanet.org in your web browser and click on any of the icons in the top-right corner of the website, as shown in the screenshot below. They are, in order from left to right:
On Senior Planet's Facebook page, you'll see many of the same articles you see on the website, but they're available to a much larger audience. Have a conversation with people about what you see on Senior Planet, "like" comments that you agree with, view some funny or inspiring photos, and be in the know about events happening at -- or being put on by -- Senior Planet.
Senior Planet's Twitter feed consists of short messages and links to photos, videos, and articles that deal with senior-related issues. You can respond to or re-post anything you find interesting, or use "hashtags" and other tools to find messages about a particular topic or person.
Senior Planet's Pinterest page is like a picture-based list of all things seniors. With categories spanning health and beauty tips, technology fixes, inspirational quotes, humour for older adults, and more, you're certain to find a picture that's worth a thousand words... or at least leads you to a thousand words' worth of interesting info.
On Senior Planet's Google Plus page, you can see events that the organization is putting on or promoting, the people who work closely with the group, and articles that the organization thinks are interesting or useful to older adults. Try leaving a comment on something that you like, or share it with someone you know who might like it.
Kind of like on Twitter, Senior Planet's Tumblr page is a very bare-bones list of interesting articles, videos, and pictures found by the organization. You can show your appreciation for what you see, or share it on your own Internet journal -- or "blog"-- if you have one.
And those are some of the different places where you can find more Senior Planet content on social media!
