CIFL Group collaborative discussions
Using Google Docs to share ideas and sample blog themes. Cindy Hirsch is the lead on blog design and media integration.
Kelsey Adams and Melinda Beyer are the leads on Facebook.I set up RSS feeds from Twitter and Google Groups to Facebook using FB Involver app
Early draft shows RSS feeds from the Google Careers group and Twitter. Large header made it difficult to show features in a single screen. Later became the “in Beta” public version.
Behind the scenes at the WordPress blog. QuickPress pushes posts to Facebook.
CiFL Demo is the shadow blog I used for drafting. Feeds, menus, and “widgets” then exported to primary blog site.
Established LinkedIn Group, then assigned ownership to Federal Librarian - Nancy Faget.
HootSuite management page for the new twitter account. Tiffany Jane Brand takes the lead on “tweeting.”Integration of Twitter, WordPress, Facebook and LinkedIn by Cindy shown in tabs on top of this and next page. Messages can be composed in HootSuite and scheduled to go out to any of the managed accounts.
A glitch - messages composed in HootSuite by CiFL owner are integrated with Cindy’s LinkedIn account.
Going public – 2011 screenshot of blog showing my welcome post, subscription feeds, syndicated feeds, blog posts, social medialinks, “follows” and top tabs including About and Guest post guidelines.
