Dig the Library, Week three: Can ya dig it? Social networking and libraries
Hello again from the NMLM Committee. Weâ€™re halfway through this whirlwind staff development course â€“ thanks for hanging in there! This week weâ€™re exploring social networking and the libraryâ€™s Facebook page.
Social Networking sites are online communities where people can connect with their friends and discover other people who have similar interests.

Popular social networking sites include MySpace, Facebook, and Linkedin.
