While the morning session will focus on attracting the attention of journalists who will tell your story, this afternoon’s session on social media will help you tell the story yourself, directly to readers, through the ever-expanding worlds of Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Foursquare, and beyond. Nancie Ravenel, a conservator with an interest in social media, has taken the lead in using social media to share information about the Shelburne Museum. Colleen Dilenschneider writes the popular blog Know Your Own Bone, and helps museums and non-profits evolve through community engagement using social media.
