    Review of Doing social media so it matters : a librarian’s guide by Shields, Joel

    Joel Shields reviews Laura Solomon's book, "Doing Social Media So It Matters: A Librarian’s Guide." Shields states, "One of the dangers of writing a topical book on the fast-moving trends of the Internet and in particular, social media is becoming irrelevant before reaching publication. A popular social network of today may become outdated in six months or a new way of communicating may change the paradigm of how we think about social interaction on digital devices. Laura Solomon’s Doing Social Media So It Matters: A Librarian’s Guide approaches this topic head-on and acts as an instructional guide through the perils of successfully implementing a social media strategy within a library setting."
