Survey for NZ librarians on social media and identity


Brenda Chawner and Timothy Greig, School of Information Management, Victoria University of Wellington, are running a survey on the use of social media by New Zealand librarians – particularly as it relates to online identity. You can access the survey here.  The following is the information provided about the survey from that site:

Social media services are web-based tools that allow people to share information in a variety of formats, and to connect with each other in multiple ways, including one-to-one, one-to-many, and many-to-many. Examples of social media include blogs, wikis, microblogs, social networking sites like Facebook and LinkedIn, and content-sharing sites such as Flickr and YouTube.

This survey is designed to find out which social media services are being used by members of the New Zealand library and information management professions, the extent to which they are used for work-related purposes, how respondents manage their online identities, and the benefits and drawbacks associated with the use of these services.
