One of the most important ethical issues is distinguishing between professional and personal attitudes. The first part of the paper is a short literature review. The second part is study of Croatian public libraries on Facebook. In the study, interests of Croatian libraries will be analysed. Librarians who administrate library pages or profiles can express interests by liking other Facebook pages or groups. How do they do that?
