Sorry I’m light on posts lately. I’m getting ready for a day-long (!) workshop at the ACA meeting in Halifax. In preparing I was thinking about a question and thought I’d throw it out to all of you.
If your institution is using multiple social media platforms–Facebook, Twitter, blog, Flickr, for example–it’s really easy to use multiple venues to share the same information. Say, when you put up a blog post you then share a link to it on FB and Twitter. On the plus side this means that people who are following you in only one venue will know about it. On the minus side people who are following you on multiple sites will get repetitive information (which can be annoying). What do you think–both as producers and consumers? What do you think about repeating info on different venues?
