Attending #MLTW2017? Read this post.

This is Bill Drew.  I am the guy who keeps the website and social media going for our division.  I will be attending #MLTW2017.  I have volunteered to blog, tweet, and post on Facebook during the workshop.  I am looking for others that would be willing to do so as well.   I will be posting on our website where it automagically goes to Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, LinkedIn, and out to many of you via email subscription to the website.  This will be a very loosely organized effort.  If you will write about the workshop on social media, please use the hash tag #MLTW2017.  That way everyone can find the posts.  I am sure people are going to get sick of hearing from me so I am hoping to have other voices in the stream as well.

Full Story: Top Takeaways From Some of the Best Fed Facebook Pages – GovLoop

Cutting to the core of the article, here are the 6 key takeaways:

  1.  “Be visual with what you share, but also find fun ways to tell your audience about how the work in your department or agency gets done. Who are the people behind the curtain?”
  2. “Really consider who your audience is and target your posts to them.”
  3. ” When you deal with difficult-to-understand or explain topics, find a way to break down the information for the general public.”
  4. “If you offer services, use some of your page to help the public easily gain access to those services, and be ready to answer questions about them.”
  5. “Be prepared to respond to as many of the (legitimate) questions or comments you receive.”
  6. “You can use your Facebook page to inform about all of the things that you do or offer. Don’t be pigeonholed by what your audience thinks are the only things that you do. Expand their knowledge and share your awesomeness!”

My own take (Bill Drew) on this is that libraries are good at this type of thing and need to extend it to the social side of their presence in the cyber environment.  Why would you do otherwise?
