OLD FRIENDS FIND MIDLIFE FRIENDS
It is a special joy when old friends become midlife friends.
How does this happen?
Currently, most old friends find each other and reconnect through social media,
Many double milestoners are adept at using social media and probably
already located old friends. Good for you.
However, there are those of us still learning.
Here's a few basic tips for finding, and being found, by old friends.

You may be surprised how many women, posting to social media sites using their
married names, wonder why no old friends are contacting them. Duhhhh!
There is an easy solution.

Then there is the issue of posting a photo to social media sites.

Others use photos from high school days.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Resist posting very personal information. For example, month and day of your
birthday is sufficient. It is not necessary to give year of birth.
Be aware of 'privacy settings.'
Consider joining Facebook, Linkedin, Instagram, Twitter, etc.
Consider posting a photo.
Ask for help from experienced posters, especially concerning 'privacy settings.'
