 Platforms, standards
 Access issues
 Patrons are different
 Usage
 Professional hesitancy
 Work/life balance
Branding
 A brand is a promise delivered. It is your reputation and
your legacy. Branding is the practice of producing trust
and is at the heart of all marketing endeavors. When we
market our services or organization, we do so with a
promise to meet or exceed the expectations of the
audience who must find us relevant.
-Linda Citroen, LIDA360

 Facebook, Instagram, Twitter
Choosing a Persona

 http://namechk.com
“What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.”
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
