Can social media improve your finances?
That's the topic if a discussion I'll be moderating in Washington, D.C., at the AARP headquarters, in conjunction with their cool LifeTuner website. The glorious details (note: RSVP required):
Date & Time: June 17 - 5:30 to 7:30pm
5:30 to 6:30 pm Panel Discussion
6:30 to 7:30 pm Networking Reception with Refreshments
Panel: Social Media & Money: Can it help you save more, spend less?
What kind of money conversations are happening online today? Can you
teach others about money in less than 140 characters? Are
frugal-living blogs and online communities a fad due to the recession,
or a true trend? Can Facebook be a useful finance tool? Learn how
social media is changing how people talk about and manage their money.

It's part of Digital Capital Week, which -- in addition to the event I'm participating in -- looks to have an interesting lineup.
