You tube is the most popular video sharing website that allows user to post and share videos. The library use you tube to create virtual tours, record and share events. I believe that if you make a good use of you tube you will gain more knowledge related with the topic you want to learn. For example. You can find tutorials, music videos, videos of different areas, etc. I love use you tube!.
I want to share this video about virtual tours libraries at the University of Sydney
Flickr allows users to share and embed personal photographs. I open an account with Flickr and I found interesting photos related with the libraries. The libraries use Flickr to share pictures with the online community about subject tags like: library, Librarian, books, serials programs, architecture and more

I do not use so much twitter but I consider that is important to learn how to use it, when you working at the library. Twitter is a micro blogging allows you to write 140 characters to groups or friends. This is the reason why some libraries use twitter because microblogging uses short messages in order to tell people about events , reading, lectures books sales, new resources, etc. without spending so much time.

Facebook is the biggest social media that became popular since 2004. In my personal experience I do not use so much Facebook but it is really good to be in communication with friends that you have lost contact. I have learnt in social media class that Facebook is not just being connected with your closer friends, It is also about businesses in which allows you to create your own Facebook page. For example, Libraries use Facebook page in order to share information about news, events, customer support, -learning etc. So, the community keep update with all the information.
Normally, I used to see a website with the link BLOGs, but I do not Idea what was about. During class at social media, I have learnt so much about blogs and how important is to use it in order to keep information update depend on the organization. This is an important tool to know, when you going to work at the library. On the other hand, I feel more confident about how to create and use the blog.
I will keep the blog to be connected with friends at social media class.
I found this photo on flickr , I want to share with you
I found this interested topic., I want to share this information about QR codes., if you want to see more go this link
Librarians and staff in large research universities, small liberal arts institutions, public libraries, and museums are experimenting and discovering useful ways to implement QR codes in both their physical and online libraries.
“Library Success: A Best Practices Wiki” has a QR Codes page and is one place where librarians and others can share and link to how their libraries are using QR codes. The wiki provides a great way to find ideas and learn from each other.
Examples of QR code uses in libraries include:
- Library exhibits that include a QR code link to songs, videos, Web sites, surveys, contests, etc. or other information that augments the exhibits.
- Codes in the library stacks/end caps or magazine/journal areas that point to online electronic holdings of print materials or related subject guides.
- Linking to library audio tours for orientations.
- Code added to print handouts for additional information on mobile friendly sites.
- QR code with text that loads the library’s text message reference service and other contact information into the patron’s phone.
- Art shows or permanent art in libraries with a QR code linking to the artists’ Web sites.
- In catalog records to offer patrons basic info about an item, including the location and call number. Users can scan the code and head to the stacks rather than writing or printing.
- Taped to video/DVD cases, linking to mobile-friendly video trailers.
- Code placed on staff directory pages and research guides that go to mobile friendly sites for later reference.
- Code placed on audio book cases for author interviews or books for reviews.
- Code placed on study room doors connecting to room reservation forms.
- Library video tutorials—individual videos or create a QR code to a YouTube playlists of videos, which create a great mobile home screen app that can be saved for easy access, as needed
