Hi Everyone:

I'm trying to have a sense of what Oregon's libraries are doing to keep in contact with the non-English speaking (Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Somali, Russian, etc.) and multicultural communities (ethnic groups that may know the English language but have very strong cultural traditions), that is, the best practices you know.
What are the best social media that you are using (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, websites, blogs)?
How do you use it? For instance, with Facebook, what is the best path that you take to get more "Likes"? Do you find Twitter a more popular medium?
I would appreciate any information that you can provide from personal experience or from studies.
Thank you so much and have a great week,

Martín Blasco
