Conversation Starter: Subversive tweets and likes: Social media = new government information? Other Moscone Convention Center
130 (N)
Description :

Traditional government information is considered official; that is, it is created under the approval of government agencies. Yet as Snowden’s release of NSA documents and Weibo.com in China have demonstrated, official or unofficial government information (i.e. not approved for public release) can be quickly discussed and analyzed via social media platforms. Hence librarians need to be versed in new forms of government information, and consider them as sources to provide to users. Let’s discuss social media communication around unofficial government information and strategies that librarians can use to incorporate it into instruction.
