Week 12 - Wrap up: social networks and catch up

How good was this week? I really enjoyed the article on different ways social networking can be used in a business way. I have embedded the table that was in the article.
Good to see that Libraries have a presence on MySpace. Not sure if I want to go there yet....but I was very impressed with the American Library Associations MySpace page - especially the profile that claims the library is a Capricorn and is currently in a relationship (aren't all Libraries in a Relationship?).
I must go and become a "friend" of the British Library on FaceBook. Yep, I have succumbed and joined FaceBook. I am catching up with all my old SOCOG buddies. Plus I have become addicted to a game similar to Scrabble called "Wordscraper" which I am currently playing with 2 of my friends.
I am also on Bebo as this seems to be the preferred social networking site in the UK so am now catching up with my London friends and nieces/nephews there doing the travel thing....
I definitely intend to look more into Second Life (but where to find the time? I barely have enough time to live my own life!).
Make sure you fill out the feedback form and then the separate form to let the State Library know you have finished.
Thanks for coming on this journey with me!
