Why social media buttons? Beyond click-through rate, this post examines the connected UX of social media, websites, and library services

Facebook explains "The Graph" in their developer documentation:

Now that you've seen how actions and objects interact with people and your app, it's worth pointing out that this is why we call this a Graph. In computer science, a graph is a set of objects that are interconnected. When you create a story on Facebook, you're not just posting text for someone to read. You're also creating a set of structured relationships, as well. Your app, the person using your app and the article they like are all now connected. This is why we call it a graph. You're not just telling stories, you're also creating a structured history of the things that people have done in the world.
This document guides you through the key steps to publish your first story with Open Graph. You'll build a sample app that likes an object and publishes a story to Facebook.

Google now supports organization logos with schema.org and #microdata, as "a way to connect your site with an iconic image. We want you to be able to specify which image we use as your logo in Google search results."

How would I add this to my joomla site? Would it go in the template?

A handy Chrome extension that enables microdata discovery around the web:

+Robert Visser I have that app installed, too. It's great for checking to see if you have nested everything correctly, but I like the look of the data better with Microdata.reveal.

I'm mostly the same way, yet we see these buttons everywhere! I've been thinking about it lately, so I wrote a blog thing about their value, http://hellolibrarian.com/social-media/measuring-value-of-social-media-buttons/

"I would like to point out the wonders of the public library, one of the greatest examples of collaborative consumption in the history of the Western world."
With collaborative consumption — the growing new economy based on access instead of ownership —you don’t have to buy a bike, car, prom dress, DVD, or chainsaw. You rent it or swap for it.

Cheat sheet for the current state of front-end design, from a recent talk by Dave Rupert. I'm not sure how far along libraries are though.

"Until academics get their acts together and start using new modes of publication, we need to recognize that actions like Aaron Swartz's civil disobedience are legitimate. They are attempts to liberate knowledge that rightly belongs to all of us but that has been acquired by academic publishers through tens of thousands of contracts of adhesion and then bottled up and released for exorbitant fees in what functionally amounts to an extortion racket."

I always knew I liked Spanish pirates more than German pirates. In this study of digital music consumption, Spain, in comparison to Germany, showed 230% more clicks on illegal downloading websites. http://ipts.jrc.ec.europa.eu/publications/pub.cfm?id=6084
