Reunion Expands Thru Social Media

February 16, 2013 by Kathi Corl Browne (Register to contact)

The Perrysburg Class of 1982 tried something new this past reunion. Rather than limit classmates to meeting in person, the reunion launched a Google+ hangout on air to allow long distant friends to offer a greeting by computer, or silently observe the reunion on YouTube!

Google+ launched this new feature in November 2011, allowing people to connect virtually at no cost. One of the '82 classmates, Kathi (Corl) Browne, couldn't make the reunion but offered to coordinate a hangout so she and others could take part. Another classmate who was undergoing chemo treatments for breast cancer also took advantage of the opportunity to say hello.

Social media is a buzz word in the marketing world, but who would have thought it would be used for a class reunion?
