The NMC recently launched a social media experiment as part of its role in the HP Catalyst Initiative, a community of nearly 100 schools, universities, and NGOs around the globe. The experiment, which we call "Pay It Forward Friday," was aimed at understanding more about the ways information disseminates across social networks to grow communities.
Like many writers, I attended university pursuing an English degree and (fingers crossed) a successful career in print media as a journalist or editor or columnist, etc. Back then, it was easier to distinguish yourself as a published writer because there was more of an accepted formula: write for your school’s newspaper or literary magazine, freelance for some local magazines, intern here and there…then go work for The New York Times, right?!
The New Media Consortium and the Edward and Betty Marcus Foundation are pleased to announce that registration for Maximizing the Returns of Social Networks for Your Museum, a special day-long event to be held June 29-30, 2010, in San Antonio, Texas, is now open.

Social Networking and Museums
With the emergence of new technologies and platforms many museums have rushed to create Facebook pages, Twitter feeds, and Flickr pages. Rather than wait for visitors to create content about their collections, museums need to be present and proactive on social media platforms -- but how best to do this?
