Fostering Community and Collaboration With Facebook

Event Type: SWFLN Webinar
Date: 5/2/2018
Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 3:00 PM
 Facebook, in many ways has become a combination of our favorite pub, the space around the office water cooler, and a public space where conversations and exchanges are limited only by our imaginations…and (occasionally) an adherence to standards of community decency. Library staff members across the country are becoming increasingly sophisticated about their use of Facebook as a way for engaging members of their community and collaborating to produce positive changes in that community.

Join us for this one-hour highly interactive webinar that will focus on a few case studies and include plenty of time for participants to discuss their own efforts to use Facebook as a tool to nurture positive transformations.

Participants, by the end of this webinar, should be able to:

Provide a one-sentence description of what Facebook can do to benefit current and prospective library users

Identify at least three resources they can use in their efforts to more effectively support and promote positive change within communities through the use of Facebook

Return to their worksites with at least three ideas they will immediately begin to implement incorporating Facebook into the work they do with members of their communities

Optional Pre-session Work:
Watch the following brief video, skim the following article, and be prepared to discuss what it suggests for your own efforts to incorporate Twitter into your efforts to foster collaboration and community development.
