The American Library Association is making a few changes in the social media world. To make sure that social library supporters receive ALA news from the entire organization, ALA leaders are going to share news items and updates from two main social media profiles. Effective this week, the ALA Washington Office will begin to share social posts on the flagship ALA Twitter (@ALALibrary) and Facebook accounts. We encourage all librarians and library supporters to follow and ‘Like’ the two social media profiles, since we’ll continue to share library policy news on those channels.
This means that we will discontinue the @ala_wo and ALA Washington Office Facebook profiles for general news posts, but keep them active for live-tweeting events and other similar occasions. Advocates can still keep up with Washington news that affects libraries by following the main ALA profiles at @ALALibrary and on Facebook. They can also subscribe to the District Dispatch blog via email or RSS, continue to follow the ALA Washington on tumblr, Pinterest or flickr or subscribe to our YouTube channel.
