Today Margie asked us to write a post outlining the features we’ve built into our blogs that make them more “social”. I’ve done a lot of things to integrate my blog and social media platforms, such as:
I allow people to follow and comment on my blog.
I have embedded my Twitter feed into my blog.
I have included links to my social media feeds on my blog.
I have embedded a list of blogs I follow into my sidebar.
I have connected my blog to my Twitter and FaceBook accounts so that my new posts are shared across different platforms.
Social Media class has been fun, but keeping everything regularly updated with relevant and interesting content is a full time job! I could definitely see myself doing social media for a library, but it would require some very careful curating, writing and scheduling indeed.
