Ancestry.com's Corporate View on #RipFacebook--Do Genealogists Care?


The above tweet flew from Ancestry.com's corporate account at 9:00 am. on 21 October (today).

Do genealogists following Ancestry.com on Twitter even care what Ancestry.com thinks of the use of various hashtags?

Personally if I were managing Ancestry.com's social media I would avoid posting opinions such as these on corporate social media. Unless, of course, they were hoping to "ride the #ripfacebook" wave. It's ironic that while they thought the hashtag was "premature," they used it themselves.
