Engaging in online social networks

Over the last year, the library world has gravitated to Facebook and other social networking sites in a big way. In my column for the September 2007 issue of Computers in Libraries titled ďLibrarians face online social networks,Ē I gave an overview of online social network sites, featuring Facebook as an example.

Computers in Libraries September 2007 Edition

I find Facebook to be a great way to keep up with my colleagues around the world that I have gotten to know in my travels. I think that itís important for those of us that work in libraries to gain some experience with these kinds of social networking sites that attract the interest of so many of our users.

Facebook is just one example. LinkedIn has grown to be one of the main sites for making professional connections. Iíve just started to build my LinkedIn network. While I see all these sites as having great potential, itís quite a challenge for me to make time to keep up with them.

You can view a list of my other Systems Librarian columns published in Computers in Libraries.

Well Linkedin is pretty different than all the other networking sites. Linkedin is very professional than any other social networking site. It can be termed as business networking site. More than fun people join Linkedin for purpose. I came across this site from some of the Blog which say Linkedin can be accessed over the phone without internet. In fact with this service, Linkedin access will be even more convenient than ever.
