Building on his acclaimed work How to Use Web 2.0 in Your Library, social media guru Bradley explains exactly how libraries can get the most out of the gamut of social and real-time media technologies available.

Illustrations help guide readers through each step of creating a range of resources, and a companion website, including podcasts from the author, ensures readers are kept up to date in this highly dynamic and fast-moving area. Several new chapters look at the following key areas:
  • Social networking
  • Presentations
  • Social search engines
  • Twitter

This is essential reading for library and information  professionals wishing to harness the social networking revolution to their advantage.
