From FamilySearch Wiki
These technologies can be used in genealogy as an aid in finding and evaluating records and resources. This wiki article is a form of social media, due to its open edit nature and discussion feature. Through connecting with social media you can connect with experts anywhere in the world. Each social media tool is specifically designed to share certain types of information at varying rates. A wiki is designed to share educational text at a slow rate of conversation, while a Skype chat is designed to share conversational video, audio, or text at a much faster faster (real-time) rate. Knowing the purpose or benefits of each tool will help you to use them in your genealogy search.
