March 21 2016 Meeting

Our regular monthly meeting (3rd Monday of each month) falls on March 21st this year. We will again be meeting at the First National Bank Community Room. We get together starting at 6PM for networking and the meeting is called to order at 6:30PM. For the program this month Carrie Cook will present “Social media is a way to share history freely”: Because researchers realize that social media should not be considered an archival alternative – they may be the last to join the party. Given the availability and ease of use, social media can be a vital augmentation to sharing knowledge, images, and requests “with the masses”. User friendly interfaces have contributed to a large “customer base” that access social media with high historical content. Samples from Facebook and other internet sources will be used to show how this medium has increased participation and interest in both popular history as well Oklahoma history of interest to today’s participants.
