Zoom

Zoom, a video meeting and conferencing service, formerly used mainly for business meetings, is now being used for book club meetings, worship services, birthday parties, and much more. Bay Seniors is working toward using Zoom for various member services, starting with a weekly “drop-in coffee hour” for members to enjoy virtual time together. If you’re interested in more information, email centre@bayseniors.ca.

Bay Seniors has prepared two easy-to-use documents to get you started on Zoom:

Social Media

As we all continue to adapt to staying in touch with family and friends through fewer and smaller in-person gatherings, being able to get together online is more important than ever. Those of us who already use social media may be using it more, and in different ways, while others are just beginning to embrace it.

Social media, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and many more, are available as “platforms,” the word used to describe the specific technologies and programs that allow communications between different users in one virtual location. Bay Seniors has an active Facebook page we invite you to visit and participate in: www.facebook.com/bayseniors.
