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.

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.

Worthwhile webinar on maker programming at the library. Discusses funding, staffing, and programming.  Also points to the importance of seeking out opportunities (never saying "No" to something that looks interesting), full time staffing for maker spaces, and ways to build on existing programming.
