Had a great conversation today on Toby Bloomberg’s BlogTalkRadio Diva Marketing Talks program, about Boomers and Social Media.

Toby’s program notes summarize who was there and what we were on about:

Think that social media is all about Mils, Gen X or Gen Y? Think again. The Boomer Generation may be late to this party but will the sheer numbers of the demographic influence SM?  Des Walsh – Des Walsh dot Com, Barbara Rozgonyi – Wired PR Works and Carlos Hernandez – iRM Consulting, join Toby to talk about will the Woodstock generation be as open to naked conversations as they were to dancing in the rain sans clothes?

In the course of the conversation we shared that the four of us are submitting a proposal for us to present a panel discussion on the topic at BlogWorld & New Media Expo in Las Vegas in October.

We have every intention of making it an unforgettable session!

We are already collecting statistics and we think we have enough material already to provide content for three or more panel sessions, so we will be doing some condensing. But we are keen to collect some real life stories to help paint the picture of Boomers and Social Media 2009.

You can listen at BlogTalkRadio or here to the recording of the broadcast, or download to listen on your player at your convenience.
