Facebook Perfect for Baby Boomers, Even if Looking for Realtor!

Posted on 08/19/2009. Filed under: Baby Boomers | Tags: , , , , , , |

This is actually a second part to my musings about Sir Paul McCartney and his visionary (in my opinion) song, “When I’m 64”.  I am also a Baby Boomer and Realtor in Ft. Myers whose business is seeing more and more of my Baby Boomer contacts looking at property on the sunny coast of Florida.  They are using Facebook to search.

The lyrics I am referring to:

“drop me a line,Paul Mccartney 1
stating point of view.
Indicate precisely what you mean to say.
Yours sincerely wasting away.

Give me your answer,
fill in a form, –
mine for ever more.”

Facebook has become a media giant and fits perfectly into the Boomer lifestyle.  Facebook was originally designed as a way for college students to stay in touch.  As they graduated, they continued to stay in touch.  Later, it became a search tool for finding friends, neighbors and classmates that one lost touch with over the years.  More recently, business owners started networking with clients and prospects through this giant “Social” network.

Facebook is perfect for Baby Boomers.  It is very user friendly and easy to learn.  Baby Boomers now have time to search for old friends and school mates to wonder what became of them.  As they begin to migrate to sunny, Fort Myers, it is a way to stay in touch with family and the “old” neighborhood.  It is also a tool to find a Realtor who understands their new lifestyle needs.

Was my analogy a stretch?  Probably, but I feel the need to address my Baby Boomer peers.  If Sir Paul’s song brings joy and comfort to you, then stay in touch for more articles for Baby Boomers and the mass exodus that is being predicted.  Fort Myers is the perfect place “When I’m 64”!

Don’t be a stranger, comments are welcome!
