Social Web Literacy

We'll be discussing the Social Web and how knowing about it can help us make libraries more relevant to our social web savvy patrons.

Social networks connect people in so many ways. Sites like MySpace, Facebook, and LinkedIn have established networks of millions of people constantly meeting, collaborating, and interacting. Finding a friend or colleague has never been easier. Finding a friend of a friend of a friend is a piece of cake, too. The whole complex web for just one person (my Facebook Friend Wheel is shown here) is nothing short of astounding for the uninitiated. For the experienced users of the social web, it's merely a tool. The magic is what happens because of it.

We hope you enjoy this voyage into the Social Web and would love to hear some of your experiences. Please leave a comment and share. Participation is what it's all about.
