    And how are you communicating with them?
  • is really just a label for the way the internet looks today
    • Its up to you to figure out what the *something* is!
    These are the tools that allow you to do something
  • What’s changed?
    • RSS-fed
    • You can now 'subscribe' to a feed, so content comes direct to you without you having to seek it out.

    • Whats a podcast?
    • Whats a wiki?
    • What is social bookmarking?
    • What is a personalized homepage?
  • What is a blog?
    • Website of entries, descriptions and thoughts, updated regularly
    • Usually maintained by one person
    • Uses free / simple interface
    • Allows people to comment and to subscribe
    • Mainly text but can be photo / audio / video
    • Technorati tracking 106m
  • Blogging: stories with words
    • A conversation: a two way communication channel
    • Think of it as keeping in touch with friends
    • Write like a real person, not a PR
    • Write about real experiences, personal views
    • Use your blog to link to others, and key points of information
  • Keep it personal
  • Does it make any difference?
    • Blogs are perfect for contacting the ‘Long Tail’ museum visitors: a large number of keen, long-term, disparate individuals.
    • When aiming at larger, transient or more mainstream audiences, such as families or tourists, traditional routes like advertising and website listings may be more appropriate.
    • The public seem to respond very well to things you might not think to include on a blog, for example – behind the scenes work: the arrival of unusual exhibits, preparing exhibitions.
    • Sharing the responsibility for the blog amongst a group really helps reduce the workload too!
  • Trend towards microblogging
    • Linked to growth in mobile and social networking
    • Status
    • Irregular posts
    • Photo sharing & social bookmarking
    • Twitter is a kind of public instant messenger stream. You go online or on your mobile device and send text messages (”tweets”) of up to 140 characters — or about one sentence long. Your tweets can be read by others, and you can sign up to follow the messages others write so that you can read theirs.
    • You can also add tags, which allow you to trace comments on particular subjects, events or stories.
