During catastrophic natural disasters, a nation’s citizens actively seek out information related to health, safety, and official government communications. Libraries need to be poised to provide that information in the event that a crisis strikes their communities. In this presentation, Information Resource Officer (Librarian) Michael Huff reviewed his experience in managing social media communications by the U.S. Embassy Japan and its library during the Tohoku earthquake crisis, from March 11 until April 16, 2011. Putting what he learned in the context of how information has been disseminated in other countries during other crises, Mr. Huff outlined a list of best practices for libraries to consider in planning for natural disasters.

Social Media Desk Corners

Social Media Desk Corners
Social Media Management
Image by Intersection Consulting
www.intersectionconsulting.comOne of the biggest challenges organizations face when it comes to social media is “social capacity” – the degree to which they can effectively engage in social media discovery, strategy, implementation and management.

In order to build out programs in a financially efficient manner, some businesses adopt an “off the corner of the desk” approach – where existing employees take on social media responsibilities in addition to their regular job tasks. As social media takes root, some level of success is attained and value becomes established, another challenge begins to presents itself – deciding whether it’s time to assign a dedicated social media leader to guide strategy. When does the opportunity cost of a “desk corner” mind set begin to outweigh the cost of restructuring your social program?

Social Media Group and Livingston Communications today announced they have signed a letter of intent to create the world's largest independent social media marketing and communications firm. The acquisition of Livingston Communications will be completed in August, 2008.

Acquiring Livingston Communications will grow Social Media Group's staff to 20, and round out an already significant client portfolio with more technology and nonprofit social media clientele.

"Joining forces with Social Media Group accelerates our ability to offer the necessary resources to serve these enterprises. I look forward to working with Maggie to create the world's best social media agency."
