This article is off-topic. That is, it is not about the usual genealogy-related topics usually described in this newsletter. However, I know that many people use Zoom to participate in family discussions or online “family reunions.” In addition, many genealogy-related vendors often use Zoom to meet with other employees and vendors alike. I consider Zoom to a be a popular tool for use by genealogists and for lots of other purposes as well.
In the May 1, 2020 edition of this newsletter, I briefly mentioned Zoom, a very popular teleconferencing product that allows for one-on-one video conversations, groups of people participating in a group video meeting, or even online webinars with up to 10,000 people in the audience.
A newsletter reader questioned the use of Zoom by asking, “I’ve been concerned about security issues that have been reported with regards to Zoom. Yet it is being used by large numbers of people. What’s the latest?”
