Library Corner 9/1/2009

Even though I love technology, getting the hang of all these social networking gadgets is not easy. This week’s site gives some tips on Twitter, specifically how to properly ‘retweet’. The art of “retweeting” is best described as taking a twitter message someone else has posted, and rebroadcasting that same message to your followers. When broadcasting this message, you should give credit to the original poster. While retweeting sounds great for the original tweeter (since there is usually a link involved), retweeting can actually benefit you as much or more. The post “How to Retweet: A Simple Guide” is found on “Blogging Bits” at http://bloggingbits.com/the-art-and-science-of-retweeting-for-twitteraholics/.

New Non-Fiction Books include: “A Failure Of Capitalism: The Crisis Of '08 And The Descent Into Depression” by Richard A. Posner; “Ecological Intelligence: How Knowing The Hidden Impacts Of What We Buy Can Change Everything” by Daniel Goleman; “Get With The Program!
