Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails.  Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.  Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb

Welcome Message
WELCOME to the SOCIAL-NETWORKING mailing list, where you can share information and queries about the use of social networking sites or services in family research and genealogy. Have fun! :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-::-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: LIST GUIDELINES: Please DO: ~ keep messages on topic. ~ be sure all messages are in Plain Text (see for help). ~ be kind and polite to your fellow subscribers. If someone makes a mistake on list, leave it to the list administrator to correct that subscriber. If someone posts something you don't like, take it up directly with that person or the list administrator privately and not on the list. ~ post with a short, informative subject line. ~ limit signature blocks to four lines or less and omit surnames from them unless they are configured so that they will not interfere with searches. ~ keep messages short and succinct, focused on a single subject. ~ snip when replying to messages. ~ share information that you have by posting queries and responses on the list. Please DO NOT : ~ post messages that may be offensive or that are political or religious in nature. Inflammatory and/or insulting messages to the list or to the list administrator will result in immediate unsubscription without notice. ~ post messages of a commercial nature, a public promotion of some product or service, messages asking to buy or sell anything, or links to items on e-Bay or any other auction site, and please avoid mentioning prices. ~ post virus, spam, or hoax warnings. ~ post list administrative matters, personal chat, netiquette lessons, rhymes, ditties, songs, recipes, festive greetings, chain letters, jokes, or other trivia. ~ breach copyright or licensing agreements. ~ cross-post queries (sending the same questions to multiple lists at the same time). ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ General information: ~ The REPLY button normally sends replies to the list, but your software may work differently. Always check the TO field before pressing SEND to avoid the embarrassment of sending a private message to the list. If your comment should go to just the original poster, you might need to copy and paste their address into your reply. ~ If you have problems with RootsWeb list mail -- - Check the list archives to see if you've missed any messages. If you're not missing any messages, no further action is probably necessary. If the list seems too quiet, post a relevant, on-topic message to the list to stimulate conversation. - If the above doesn't apply, check the Help Desk page at to see if a problem has been posted. - If the Help Desk page doesn't reveal what the problem may be, check to see if you are still subscribed to the list (see Passwords <>). If you don't see the list on the message you'll receive from Password Central, just resubscribe to the list. If you receive a Welcome Message, then you've re-subscribed successfully and can just await delivery of list mail or post an on-topic message to the list. - If there is no message at the Help Desk and Password Central indicates you are still subscribed to the list, then check your spam/message folders to see if mail is being filed incorrectly. If that's not the problem, contact your ISP. - If all else fails, contact the list admin *privately* off list at <>. ~ To change the e-mail address that is subscribed to this list, unsub using your old address and resubscribe using your new address. :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-::-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: Please contact the list admin at or if you are unable to resolve subscription problems or have questions or comments about the guidelines. :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-::-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-: :-+-:
