Library TikTok is growing — organically. Librarians are meeting teenagers where they are, on TikTok, with videos that attract their attention and lead to library visits and more reading. Can this unorganized, grass-roots approach translate to marketing and communications? Is it looking at the idea of “influence” through a different lens? Neville and Shel explore the idea in this short mid-week episode.
The next monthly, long-form episode of FIR will drop on Monday, January 23.
We host a Communicators Zoom Chat each Thursday at 1 p.m. ET. For credentials needed to participate, contact Shel or Neville directly, request the credentials in our Facebook group, or email email@example.com.
Special thanks to Jay Moonah for the opening and closing music.
