Information professionals in high-gear: developing social media savvy**!
**savvy /'savi/ noun - 1 the cognitive condition of someone who understands - knowingness, understanding, dig, grasp, get the picture, clued-up, well-informed

Is it a race? Is it a stampede? Is it a journey? Or is it a combination?
