Social Media Explained

Wondering what Rudai 23 is all about? Here is an image, orginally shared by Douglas Wray on Instagram which explains in a nutshell the various nuances of the different social media tools that we will be exploring during the course.
Change the word donut to library and there you have it!
Well there's a bit more to it than that. We will be exploring some of these social media tools, and more as well as looking at why we use social media and questioning whether it really benefits us professionally.
As well as that we will be looking at some of the various professional networks that exist online for information professionals and exploring how they can open up new paths in our careers, inspire us to try new things and give us courage and conviction during times when the library profession as a whole is in danger of becoming  devalued.
Most of all we will be living and breathing the library world online, talking to and hearing from other library professionals who are passionate about their work and the work that we do in libraries across the globe.
What's not to love about that?
