Don’t Know How to Use Facebook? You’re Fired!

"According to the Daily Mail newspaper, the British intelligence agency MI5 has rolled out plans to lay off workers (including spies) who do not know how to use social-networking tools like Facebook and Twitter." 

Okay, so admittedly this is a bit of a stretch -- but..... the real fact is, if Rotarians (that's you and me) don't embrace all resources and technologies -- if we "just keep doin' what we've always done" -- we're going to get left in the dust.

Please be assured that Rotary International is indeed using (very successfully) Social Media including Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. To truly reach our members and those outstanding younger professional, business and community leaders that we hope to invite to Rotary, then our clubs and districts also need to be using every available new communication tool available to us.
Just because we're 105 years old and the oldest service organization, doesn't mean we have to act like it!
