RSS has made my work really simple. For those who don't know what RSS is - it's magic code that allows me to export newly published content from one website to another. HBPL has about 6 blogs maintained by different staff. I was struggling with how to showcase all of them on Facebook. Thanks to a fellow librarian's blog, I discovered Yahoo Pipes. Pipes gathers up all the blog rss feeds and lets me repost them into Facebook. In addition to Pipes, I can use Twitterfeed to forward posts to the Library's Twitter page. I just sit back and the bloggers post to their hearts' content and it automatically gets posted on Facebook and Twitter.
