Abstract

Enabled and underpinned by the use of the internet, knowledge and information take an increasingly prominent place in modern society. As the technologies of social media create a second wave of innovation and opportunity in the organisational use of the web, this research paper examines the nexus of two important phenomena: various established informaiton practices and the uptake of social media tools to facilitate or extent these practices. The paper reports an investiation of practices in which information professionals include the tools of social media and the theoretical outcomes that follow. This research provides a deeper understanding of the way that social media can benefit information practices.
