I call this "Social Media for Adults" where I explain why you might want to use Facebook but not MySpace, problems wikis can solve, and what the heck is Twitter anyway? This was delivered at a local user group in April 2009 and also via podcast at http://www.podfeet.com/wordpress/2009/07/08/213-special-mug-presentation-on-social-media/
