By cheery coincidence, we have reached two milestones in our use of social media today. Our Facebook page now has 1000 likes, and we have just passed 5000 followers on Twitter. If you don’t follow us on these services, or any of the other social media platforms we use, they are handy way of keeping up to date with our activities.
Of course, using social media is not just about building up an audience and broadcasting information. Part of our aim is to promote our sites, exhibitions and events, but it’s also to encourage people to engage with our collections and buildings, and use social media as channels for discussion.
Over the course of this year, we will be evaluating our whole web presence, and looking at ways in which we can adapt and improve what we do. We are currently focusing on our blog, and if you have not done so already, please spare two minutes to complete our online survey. The responses we have received so far are very interesting, and will help improve this blog in future.
