In today's world Social Networking has almost become a second language for some people. Still though, there are those like me, that still get confused with all the different ways of connecting to one another; whether it be through Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, etc.
This afternoon, Wednesday March 24, you will be able to better learn how to use one of these networking sites when you join Nancy Picchi for a hands-on look at Twitter from a librarian’s viewpoint. After discussing how librarians can use Twitter professionally as both a social networking and a current awareness tool, Nancy will:
- demonstrate how to build a Twitter network,
- offer pointers on creating and sustaining Twitter conversations,
- discuss Twitter etiquette,
- share tips on how to monitor the Twitter stream, and
- demonstrate a number of Twitter-related sites and apps that help streamline Twitter use
Nancy will also discuss ways in which librarians can use Facebook professionally, and offer pointers on how Facebook users can separate private and professional spheres on the same personal account. Finally, Nancy will demonstrate how librarians can use the professional networking service Linkedin in conjunction with Twitter and Facebook to build a professional social media portfolio.
So if you'd like to take part in this technological wave of networking and want to learn some new things, come join the NY Librarians Meetup and Nancy Picchi today to get a hands-on demo of Twittering and Facebook.
