For the first time in history, more people are able to say more things - to more people than at any time in the past. Social media has played a significant role in enabling people across the globe to interact with patrons, users and friends who participate in their sphere of acquaintances. The potential impact to libraries is significant and spans from greater participation in programs and events due to people
telling their friends, neighbours and community about their experiences, a greater utilization of libraries collections by patrons reading, watching, and listening to items from library resources.
