Synopsis

Microblogging and lifestreaming applications like Twitter, Tumblr, and FriendFeed are all around you and your users in everyday life. Robin M. Hastings presents a practical primer to help any library transform these cutting-edge, budget-friendly services into highly effective professional tools.



Written specifically for LIS professionals, Hastings' start-to-finish guide explores the ins and outs of the most popular microblogging applications, and covers everything from selection to implementation to evaluation. You'll find easy-to-follow technical tips for setting up feeds, linking to other sites and services, and searching, as well as best practices for community building, marketing, and promotion.
