The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 710 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 12 trips to carry that many people.

Social Media for Libraries – presentation on SlideShare

Presented at the Information & Library Management Africa Conference 2013

Crowne Plaza, Rosebank

26 September 2013

Abstract:

“The social media statistics of South Africa reveal an exponential increase in the use of social media. Libraries, as part of a community, cannot ignore this! Social media provide libraries instant and direct connection with their members regardless their geographical location. This paper explores social media use in libraries. The establishment of social media for the SABC Media Libraries is discussed to demonstrate a practical implementation of social media in libraries and archives. Tips and resources, with specific mention to Twitter and Facebook, as well as social media etiquette and social media policy guidelines are supplied. The literature of published articles and Infographic show the changing role of librarians in the social media era and the need for librarians to keep learning and update their skills to accommodate users’ needs.
The focus should now be on how well we do social media for the library, not on whether we should do it or not!”

Twitter Analytics

This tweet through the #anz23mthings hashtag alerted me to how get an easy update on Twitter Analytics.

I will definitely be incorporating it in my own and my library’s analytics.
I especially like the Best Tweets of a certain period, and will use it in social media feedback.

I wanted to make a printscreen of my Analytics, but the iPad2 and our ADSL is not playing along tonight… (And unfortunately, I do not have my computer anymore.)
