  13. 13. Each has it’s own audience • Twitter is great for cultural campaigns • Facebook is still incredibly popular but metrics make it ha rd for people to find you • Instagram is the fastest growing platform Instagram is own by Facebook
  14. 14. Scheduling – pros and cons Pros: Can help ensure there is content during the day Cons: Not social – how can broadcast be social? Pros: Great for reminders of events Cons: Always check trends on the day to make sure it’s not a negative
  15. 15. It is like me being elsewhere but playing a tape of my reading something out in a room o f people. Not social. Deaf to others. Out of step - I can't read the room, I don't know what is going on. What I read out could be wholly inappropriate. – Linda Spurdle, Birmingham Museums

  27. 27. LIVE STREAM Can’t put lipstick on a pig – Bad content is bad content if live or not!
  28. 28. Livestream should be done at a time that works best for audience, not always staff • Is the live stream of interest? This is NOT about marketing – this is sharing and being responsive to those taking part during (and leaving questions/remarks after). • Content should be interesting • Person(s) should have a bit of a personality. Some of the most knowledgeable people are not very good on screen sadly
  29. 29. alontariomuseum/videos/1015 5660660198147/ Great examples – W Ryan Dodge @wrdodger Royal Ontario Museum Digital Engagement Strategist - Introduces himself first so it’s SOCIAL - Curator or person he is filming introduces themselves - Does a run through before but mainly unscripted
  30. 30. A nation stays alive when its culture stays alive. ~National Museum in Kabul @Mardixon /
