User Generated Content

From the lastest Pew presentation to the FTC:
“More than a third or 35% of online adults create content online, and 57% of teenagers 12-17 make their own content to post to the Web. Younger users and home broadband users are the most avid content creators, and most post their creations online to express themselves creatively and to share their experiences with others. Beyond blogging and YouTube, the increasingly prevalence of broadband and the ever-increasing opportunities for creating and sharing content digitally contribute to the expansion of this phenomenon and even to the expansion of the definition of online content creation itself.”
I wonder how much user generated content there is on library websites and what the nature of that content is?
Blog postings
Blog comments
Book reviews
YouTube videos
Board Minutes
Local histories
Club notes
Book clubs
Community meetings
What other types of content from our users do we host? It’s certainly a good way to connect to communities and users. How do we make these services more explicit and valued?
