OPPORTUNITIES FROM COLLABORATING “ Visitors may feel more inclined to trust an organisation that they see is itself part of a network and is pulling in (aggregating) information from other useful and interesting sources. Likewise, individuals will want to link from their online spaces to the organisations that they support and will want to pull content from the websites they are interested in, into their own sites. ~ ICT Foresight.

RISKS OF NOT COLLABORATING “ However, organisations that don’t integrate social elements into their websites may risk not being found online by interested people, or turning off those who find that they can’t engage with an organisation in the way they increasingly come to expect. ~ ICT Foresight.

... EVEN HATING? “ Libraries need to define hate speech in the content guidelines that are part of their Library 2.0 applications and use these definitions to identify user-generated hate speech. “ Context and user intent play a large role in identifying hate speech, and automated systems, like word matching, may not effectively carry out the task. ~ Margaret Brown-Sica and Jeffrey Beall. Library 2.0 and the problem of hate speech. Electronic Journal of Academic and Special Libraries , 9(2).

ALL THINGS IN MODERATION? “ Humans are not always consistent … Human moderation is also slow, a problem that affects the immedicay of the Library 2.0 participation experience. It may also cause many who did not see their comments added immediately to not want to post a comment again. ~ Margaret Brown-Sica and Jeffrey Beall. Library 2.0 and the problem of hate speech. Electronic Journal of Academic and Special Libraries , 9(2).

OPENNESS ALL THE WAY? “ If you really want to build comments, you have to be open and make commenting easy. Limiting your blog content or commenting features to members also limits what you can achieve with your blog. A members-only strategy may be appropriate in some cases, but not if your goal is to engage a vocal audience. ~ Lindy Dreyer and Maddie Grant. Why doesn’t anyone comment on your blog? Associations Now , Sept. 2008. http://www.asaecenter.org/PublicationsResources/ANowDetail.cfm?ItemNumber=36272
