Google wants to ‘Get your folks online’ too, not just businesses

Get Your Folks Online

Google recently unveiled its program to help get Virginia businesses online, in an easy, free, and fast way with no catch and no cost.  It did something similar in Texas back in July after registering a number of ‘Get Online’ domains in June that covered all fifty states.

If all goes according to Google’s plans based on domain registrations, your parents will be able to get online for free, too.

Google purchased GetYourFolksonline.com, GetYourFolksonline.net, and GetYourFolksOnline.org on September 26, 2011.

While Google hasn’t announced anything official yet, it’s possible the program could be for helping your parents who have businesses.  Or, maybe Google wants you to help get your parents online to start using their social network Google+.
