Description: 

Second Lives Club is a blog and community site for women 50 years and older whose goal is "to make the best of the rest". The site reflects both the changing priorities of this under-served demographic group as well as the rapidly-changing world it lives in. In individual and occasional joint posts, Caryl and Maryl act as both tour guides and sidekicks on this unforged path. The two co-founders rely on a limited number of categories and employ truth, humor, real life experiences and solid journalistic skills to engage and validate an audience that often finds itself invisible and stigmatized by aging. 

If you “like” someone on Facebook, what does that really mean?  Will you come to their web site, buy their product, be their friend?  Where do all those “likes” come from and how do you get them?  Maryl uncovers a sure- fire approach that works for her.
