  8. 8. Conclusions Today, when almost everyone has a personal Facebookpage, users who would like to gain information about theacademic libraries and follow them are heading towards theweb pages like Facebook. Facebook pages have no adequate information and theFacebook pages of academic libraries are utilized forpersonal communication, private photos and videos. It isrevealed that utilizing from Facebook pages of academiclibraries in a personal profile page type is difficult. The usage level of web services such as Library Search andJSTOR is low. Academic libraries do not give links of theirFacebook pages in their official web sites. This reduces thereliability of libraries’ Facebook pages.QQML 2013, 4-7 June 2013, Italy, Rome
  9. 9. SuggestionsQQML 2013, 4-7 June 2013, Italy, Rome In social networks, the formality of academic librariesshould be maintained. In their official web pages, academic libraries shouldgive their links of social network sites they use andthey should give their social network link on“Communication” tab if they have. In Facebook pages, unnecessary personal photos andvideos should not be shared. Instead, videos andphotos about library should be shared.
  10. 10. SuggestionsQQML 2013, 4-7 June 2013, Italy, Rome Because they pose an obstacle in instantcommunication, , profil pages and group pagesshould not be used as a Facebook page type.Instead, “like page type” should be used. The Facebook pages of academic libraries should beopened with their official names and abbreviationsshould not be used. New technologies should be kept up with andtechnological applications (e.g.JSTOR) should beintegrated into the Facebook pages. .Education aboutsocial network and Facebook usage should be givento librarians.
