Social Media for World War One

I am sure my World War One era ancestors would be amazed at all the technological changes that have happened since the start of World War One, one hundred years ago this week.  They wouldn't have had a clue as to what social media was.  They would have written letters to get news back home, or sent a telegraph, which usually meant bad news in those days.

We don't have to wait for a letter or telegraph to learn about World War One these days.  We have internet service and social media to help us.  Monday, I wrote about the United States World War One Centennial Commission and its' website. World War One Centennial Commission is taking advantage of the use of social media.  This got me thinking about what other World War One organizations are taking advantage of social media and using it to commemorate the Centennial Anniversary of the start of World War One.

I have highlighted a few social media links for Facebook and Twitter.  Searching for World War One or WWI on these two sites brings up many more links.  I chose the following because they were current and seemed to have good information. Pinterest is another social media site to check out.  Entering "World War One" in the search window will return many pins pertaining to the war. You Tube is a great place to find videos about World War One.  Again, add search words to the search window.  Do you have a great World War One Social Media site, please leave a comment with the link to the relevant site for my readers to enjoy?
