Social media platforms provide creative ways for museums to engage with the public, but some of these platforms, like Vine and Snapchat, can be intimidating. This session will demystify these two social mediums by explaining the basics of the platforms, their cultures and their potential uses for museums. The session will include a hands-on tutorial during which participants will try their hands at creating 6-second videos on Vine and disappearing messages on Snapchat. Bring your smartphones!
