King , David L. "Managing Your Library's Social Media ChannelsLibrary Technology Reports  51(1)(January 2015)(http://www.alatechsource.org/ltr/index). - "Landscape of Social Media for Libraries" (Chapter 2) provides a quick catch-up for anyone wanting to implement, review, or expand their social media presence. Statistics about the relative reach of various social media channels allow libraries to compare audience sizes and determine where to invest scarce resources most effectively. Since these free services arise, are bought and sold, and disappear so quickly, libraries may want to keep abreast of changing relationships, for example, that Instagram is owned by Facebook, and Vine is owned by Twitter. Chapter 5, "Analytics, Goals, and Strategy for Social Media," covers sources of collectible use data. The report advocates for use of social media, and concerns about content ownership or information security are not within its scope. Libraries undertaking social media projects must decide on the size of the team they can assign to daily monitoring. The author takes the positive view that monitoring and posting shouldn't be a "huge burden" because "it's social media, so it comes and goes pretty fast.” (p. 34) An outline of how libraries can and should participate in social media is a useful reminder that it requires a level of commitment to remain responsive to trends and events on a daily basis. - NN
