30 Positive Uses of Social Networking

You don’t get many plain links from me here, so listen up! Folks at the YALSA blog have been highlighting positive uses for teens and social networking sites over the past 30 days. They’ve compiled it into a big pdf titled SOCIAL NETWORKING AND DOPA.

The ideas presented point out how libraries can engage not only their younger users but general community as well. They are a great illustration of how libraries can reach out and, dare I say, be proactive. School librarians can read this and get inspired, and then use it to combat the fears of admin.

Thanks to the bloggers at YALSA for this resource!
