1:30pm to 3:00pm
What does it mean for a museum to be social? How do museums translate real life interaction into online engagement, and vice versa? And what do users really want from museums on social media, anyway? This complete panel will address the “social” aspects of social media by looking at both online and real life museum experiences; what successful social media campaigns can look like; and finally, how museums can expand their communities by going social. Panelists will present programmatic successes (and/or failures) examining key issues, including how they have collaborated internally to produce content that is both on message and engaging to audiences, how museums interact with each other and audiences via social media, and how social media initiatives can lead to deeper appreciation of the institution as well as cross-institutional collaboration.
