LIVE CBC Human Library Live Online

On Jan. 26, National Human Library Day invited Canadians to interact with people they might not otherwise meet. Here at CBCNews.ca they joined us for the Human Library live online where digital audience members were able to socially connect with prominent Canadians about breaking down stereotypes.

Live that day they could ask questions via webcam using Spreecast or via text in Cover-it Live, and join the ScribbleLive liveblog with the Twitter hashtag #CBCHumanLibrary. Leading up to the event a campaign using Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Ranker invited Canadians to ask and vote on questions.
