I posted the set of League of Librarians cards to both my personal facebook page, the libraries flickr site, and to several flickr groups (Libraries and Librarians and 265 Library Days Project) on August 19.
Nothing much happened. There was a little flurry of activity on my facebook page when my friends saw the cards but not much else.
Wednesday, September 2, there is a mention of the cards on PAMNET with a link to the flickr set. Thursday, September 3, there is a short paragraph with a link to the flickr set in American Libraries Direct.
Stand back! When I left work on Thursday there were more than 10,000 views on the flickr set.
By Friday morning, there are another 5,000 views.
There was also a flurry of activity on twitter. bckaemper from Germany (!!!) read the PAMNET post and twitters. Wow. At the end of the day, there were 49 tweets on "league of librarian(s)" These were the twitter comments: fantastic, awesome, too cool, adorable, we need some, funny, love this, wow.
Of course I've pretty much died and gone to social networking heaven. Now let's see if our STUDENTS think they're as cool as librarians. ;)
All done, all forgiven
