Hi all,
Do you know if any library is collecting data from their social networks and
social sites on a regular basis? I refer to data such as number of posts in
blogs, Twitter followers, Facebook comments, etc.
I would like to establish some kind of metrics in order to define some
quality indicators.
I'm librarian and teacher in Seville, Spain.
Thanks a lot.
