The literary Dalek of Edinburgh Central Library | I'm for libraries! | Scoop.it

I'm not a Dr Who fan - but I'm sure there will be lots of library patrons who will like this.

Great tips for keeping up to date with your social media networks without spending all day. A positive approach to addressing messages that are negative in nature. That piece is valuable in itself.

Social Media: Libraries Are Posting, but Is Anyone Listening?

Social Media: Libraries Are Posting, but Is Anyone Listening? | I'm for libraries! | Scoop.it
If there are over 1 billion people on Facebook and the Twitterverse can help topple governments, then it only makes sense that libraries would also be using these two social media channels to connect with their communities, right? Well yes and no. Libraries are using social media, that’s clear. According to Library Journal’s Survey on Public Library Marketing Methods and Best Practices, 86 percent of libraries said they were using social media. The top two social media platforms used by libraries were Facebook (99 percent) and Twitter (56 percent). Pinterest is making some gains, with 30 percent of libraries reporting that they are pinning. The problem is that 48 percent of libraries surveyed said they weren’t measuring their efforts at all. While the survey didn’t ask if libraries are getting fans to interact with them, most libraries I have spoken with lately have said they were still struggling with that.

Secrets of a Killer Blog Post: Images [infographic] | I'm for libraries! | Scoop.it

You already know that well-researched, high-quality content is the backbone of a killer blog post. But don’t underestimate the importance of a strong visual component when you’re composing your latest and greatest update for your audience

The human brain processes images in as little as 13 milliseconds—less than the blink of an eye.

A post with an image is far more enticing to the bounce-happy readers of the Internet than one without, and is more likely to be shared on social media as well.
