I agree with the statements made in the following article -- there must be goals from the library viewpoint; there must be interaction between the library and patrons; and, link it into the catalog/webpages.
Libraries in Social Networking Software
By Meredith Farkas May 10, 2006
"When you decide to put up a library profile on MySpace or Facebook, what is your goal? I think there is a big difference between “being where our patrons are” and “being USEFUL to our patrons where they are.”
I have seen two ways that libraries have used MySpace and Facebook effectively. The first is to get feedback from students. The second is to create a library portal within MySpace and/or Facebook.
If it’s a great idea to “go where the patrons are” in terms of their courseware, why not provide the same sort of portal services in MySpace and Facebook? Some libraries have made their Facebook or MySpace site an extension of the library Web site with links to the catalog, chat reference pages, research guides, calendar of events, etc."

MySpace: Light bright and airy compared to Bebo. I found it easy to look around. Found several music videos for a singer called John (Cougar) Mellencamp through the search button. This side of it is similar to YouTube.

Podnova - first impression - clean frontpage. I do find this site a little slow to conduct the search. Searched for a couple of musicians - found a couple of interviews. Found a couple of podcasts for radio stations and saw the word Australia - thought Hamish & Andy who feature on Rove. Sure enough I found some episodes (although the latest were May). Made a feed to Bloglines and low and behold here are the latest offerings - including this week's already. I am looking forward to hearing more. Here is the website address if interested - http://www.fox.com.au/shows/hamishandandy/listen/podcasts
Spent lots of time looking - at useful stuff? maybe - at rubbish? absolutely. I tend to look for music whilst playing with different sites. I am going to search for more radio shows. I was impressed by the quality of the sound for most of the podcasts I listened to. Overall, I do not have much need for podcasts.

The library ones were a giggle.
Love all the music videos that can be found.
A video tour of all the North Shore Libraries on the homepage could be interesting.
I was surprised to find the following video - New Zealand sport - I think of You-Tube as American instead of global.
I liked the following video - if you follow rugby league and watched the Warriors match last weekend against the Roosters, you will understand the commitment, the determination, the passion, the teamwork, the desire, the captaincy, and the sportsmanship of the following moment during the game - not for the squeamish.

I love MOG. They list albums and the song lists. They show videos (usually you.tube ones) without changing screens. You can find lyrics.
I found today's artists/groups plus artists/groups of old.
You can join the site and make posts about anything related to any musical group.
I loved MOG a lot and will be paying repeat visits.

Once in, it took a bit of playing around to work out what to do. I finally found the 'Templates' under the 'Help' button. I was frustrated at editing several templates - not as efficient or as sophisticated as Word or Publisher. I used the 'Switch to' feature and tried Zoho Writer, Zoho Notebook, Zoho Planner (the 'to-do' feature), and tried to load Zoho Sheet. Again I was frustrated at how long each page took to open.
Each time I have logged on to my account, Zoho has opened with a different page - confusing. I did manage to post one of my Zoho documents to my blog (see the next blog above) - the instructions given by the Web 2.0 Team were spot on.
I like and understand the principle of having cyperspace hard drives - can access from everywhere but I do not think I like Zoho.

I made a search roll then went in and completely changed the sites and name. Easy.
