Last night I volunteered to help my photography mentor with a class she was instructing in how to use Flickr. With a hands-on class it always helps to have an extra set of eyes, hands and legs to walk the room and help students. I was more than happy to help. Not only did I coerce…umm, suggest that she teach the class but it gave me yet another chance for her to impart her years of photography experience on me.
When the class was over I wound up talking to several people and registering them for her next class (sure sign things went well). She had billed me as “the web 2.0 guru”, a name I wear proudly and several ladies asked me when I was going to teach my web 2.0 class. One woman in particular wanted to know if I would teach about Twitter. I was thrilled to hear that word (one of my favorite web 2.0 sites that I feel has such potential). So when I got a tweet from Mashable, I thought how timely.
10 Ways to Build Your Blog Community with Twitter stressed many of the points I would have made. The first 3 bolded paragraphs are just a start but each of the ten bullet points bring home good reasons to use Twitter as well. I’ll be passing this blog post along to my photography mentor. Why you may ask? Because she is also the editor of our readers advisory blog at the Library, Highly Recommended.
