Social media is everywhere. Companies, celebrities and authors have Facebook and Twitter pages to keep in touch with their fans and promote their products. Non profit organizations use social media as an inexpensive way to spread the word about their missions.
MHS Library is no exception. We are on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and now Tumblr. Each social network has it’s own culture and every person has their preference as to which one they prefer to use. That’s why I try to post on all four as often as possible. Our Facebook and Twitter accounts (as well as this blog) are linked, so whatever is posted on one gets cross posted to the others.
Libraries are not just about books; they are about information and the newest, fastest way to share information is through social media. News about the library and MHS, quotes about books and reading, research tips, notices of author events and contests, cool images … all these things and more are shared through our social media platforms.
How many of these social networks do you belong to? Next time you log in, be sure to follow MHS Library as we find our way through the sea of information out there in cyberspace. I promise not to lead you astray!
