After months (years actually) of talking, presenting and planning my Library has finally launched it’s social media initiative. We’re excited about the possibilities and happy to finally be participating. As someone who has been a part of this process from (almost) the beginning I’m eager to see what happens. I am also the person who will be creating the bulk of our social media content. I’m a bit nervous but mostly excited.
My hope is that we are able to connect with our community and reach some new people. I don’t have pie-in-the-sky hopes though. I realize that social media isn’t all fun and games. I have to keep the County’s image and reputation in my thoughts. That means the Library’s pages will be much more dry than my personal pages (duh!) and I’ll have to think twice about what I post. I believe I can handle that!
I’ve learned a lot just in the few weeks I’ve been investigating and planning for our social media launch. I can only imagine the things I’ll learn while participating! This is going to be a fun experience…a bit bumpy at times I’m sure…but fun.
