I belive I mentioned in Thing 7 that I’m not big on social media 😉
Linkedin seems to have helped me land my current job, so I’m warming up to it. I guess after my interview everyone Googled me. My only web presence is, apparently, my Linkedin profile.* I originally set up the account so I could model for students. At one point I had someone stalking me, critiquing my resume, so I amended my profile to show only my (at that time) current position, but I added a philosophy statement to make up for the missing history. To me it’s been a double-edged sword. I like the fact that I can keep some connections open through Linkedin. The app is handy to have.
Facebook is, for me, a way to keep up with people although I don’t use it much. Professionally I have never done anything with Facebook. From what I’ve seen, students aren’t very interested in friending their library. It seems to be more of a social thing. It may work better for public libraries, I don’t know, but to me there is not enough return on investment for all the time that has to be invested for a robust Facebook account.
Twitter is not for me. Too superficial. What can be said in 140 characters or less doesn’t interest me.
I love Ravelry.com for social media, but they don’t have an app (it’s like Facebook but for knitters which means for me it holds purpose).
*I did a minimalist resume on Prezi for fun and made it public, which I think you can find if you Google my name and the word resume, but apparently nobody Googles a name and the word resume. Go figure.
