Is your organization on Instagram? Museumnerd just posted this list of museums who have accounts, and I’m curious to know how many archive and libraries are using the platform. Only a few respondents on my social media survey indicated they were using Instagram, but seeing how popular the platform is I’m sure more will join soon.
Instagram seems like an easy and convenient way to snap quick shots of your repository, events, exhibits, and collections, and you can repost the photos to other social media channels. You can only post from a smartphone, and photos are hidden from people without accounts. Still, it seems like a great place to engage with younger social media users.
Do you use Instagram at your repository? Why did you choose to use it, and what types of photos do you post?
