Okay, I get it. In order to interact with our "born digital" students, we librarians have to engage in social networking. Because I believe this is true, I have set up a Facebook profile for myself, much to my daughter's horror. I think she had nightmares about me "friending" all of her friends and finding out what really goes at college. As if I didn't already know, having been a college student once myself. One of these days, I will also get around to creating a profile on LinkedIn, but it's low on my list of priorities. I plan to set up a Facebook account for the Pace Law Library because I think that might prove to be useful as a way of communicating with students; I notice that a number of other law libraries have already done this and wonder what their experience has been. However, I have to wonder what is the point of Twitter. The answer comes in a trenchant column from today's Boston Globe. The author concludes that Twitter is essentially a way to "send ... pointless little messages, gobbling up Internet bandwidth for no reason." I couldn't agree more. One of our staff members put the law library on Twitter, but frankly I don't see the point.
