Food for thought

This isn’t a discovery exercise, but something that is related to the question of why we are doing the CityLibrariesLearning program.

Watch the video, then post some thoughts on your learning blog about the statement made in the video:

Social Media isn’t a fad, it’s a fundamental shift in the way we communicate.

Feel free to agree or disagree. 🙂

    Agree absolutely. We still communicate – create poetry – share information. It is the forms that have changed – the vessel – not the content. Well, apart from the fact we communic8 in under 140 characters using abbreviated txt speak.
    Poetry books may be very nice, but poems projected on buildings in public spaces have a massive visual impact. Add a touch screen with audio and WOW! So it is with the use of mobiles – downloaded novels reach people where they are when they want something.
    Twitter allows us to communicate with colleagues in far flung libraries in ways a letter or phone call couldn’t.
    It is a shift – in the same way that air travel changed society. We have to use these tools in ways that work for our customers.
