I Just Twittered and Facebooked CNN About Hurricane Gustav

I happened to turn on CNN to get an updated on Hurricane Gustav, and what do you know - the reporter Rick Sanchez was utilizing online social networking during the newscast. He displayed the Twitter conversations and discussed using Facebook, saying "that he was utilizing the social networking thing".

So I decided to join him in the social networking thing by twittering him to see if he was really accepting new tweets. Let's see if I am added to his list.... While I was waiting I shared tweets with my other mom blogger buddies sharing concern about those in the path of the Hurricane.

I already had a great experience social networking with Katie Couric and CBS Interactive (which led to a LIVE meeting). I also checked CBS news about Hurricane Gustav as found their interactive storm tracker.

Using online social networking is not only a way for busy parents to connect with friends, but it now seems it is a way to keep up to date on news items...

Update 9:20pm.. I was just confirmed by Rick Sanchez on Facebook.. So yes - it is for real!

Here is a link to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which shows the government information on this and any other hurricanes..
