@krafty #medlibs So true- I mentioned "krafty" to my co-worker (librarians) and everyone knew who I was talking about.

One last #medlibs question - Besides this one, are we engaging as our professional selves in hashtag chats? Which ones?

How do we know the best social media? Twitter seems to be big. Will pintrest or instagram be next? #medlibs

@eagledawg I used to do #RNChat and #IVchat but haven't done either in ages - not sure the former still exists. #medlibs

#medlibs @mehlibrarian Twitter is big now but if Pinterest or something else is big we just adapt. No biggie

@eagledawg Hashtags based on current meetings, so there is no one good hashtag for me. #medlibs

#medlibs MT @elleplaster: I do worry, but think its important to show personal and pro sides. Hard to do sometimes! Also, hi all. #lurking

@mehlibrarian ah good point - are #medlibs currently more conference-based hashtags vs ongoing chats? A must to designate ahead of time.

#medlibs Someday tweet chats will go the way of the blog carnival and we will go with whatever replaces it.
