By now, most of you know how to locate and manage spreadsheets, Word documents, images, and even e-mail messages . . . but how do you identify and manage records in a social media environment?
"Social media" is an umbrella term that encompasses a number of emerging technologies that can facilitate some type of activity between individuals and groups both inside and outside the organization. Social media tools include blogs, wikis, podcasts, social networking sites, and sites to share photos and bookmarks.
Government agencies on all levels leverage social media to collaborate with co-workers and to interact with citizens, and companies use social media to inform and influence consumers. Even heavily regulated firms, like those in the financial sector, know social media can help them gain a competitive advantage.
Dr. Pat Franks will discuss the impact of social media on records management and present practical tools and strategies you can use to control records created through or residing in social media technologies.
Dr. Patricia C Franks is a certified records manager and coordinator of the Master of Archives and Records Administration (MARA) degree offered through the School of Library & Information Science at San Jose University, San Jose, CA. Pat is the Project Leader for the committee working to develop the ARMA/ANSI standard on the Implications of Collaborative, Web-based Technologies in Records Management. She is the author of a number of articles. Her most recent is Understanding Web 2.0 and Challenges for the Records Manager, published in the Information and Records Management Annual 2009. Her current research project is on the topic of social media and records management within the federal government for the IBM Center for the Business of Government.
