Social media and libraries
Libraries are the early pioneers in using social media, Social media has the potential to facilitate much closer relationships between libraries and their patrons – wherever users are based, and however they choose to learn about and access library services and resources. Social media can be an effective tool for building and engaging community. In this article we discussed about the social media its growth, applications in library and information services, advantages of the social media in libraries and the challenges encountered. Current usage of social media by the library community generally remains ad hoc and somewhat experimental, but the uptake of these tools is accelerating, and they will play an important role in library service in the future
