Public health regulations in the age of COVID have prompted many historic sites to take to the internet to share their stories, events and exhibits with the public, students and supporters online. Social media, smartphones and hand-held devices have made it easier than ever to connect and interact with current supporters and new friends — and it’s easier than you might think!
Old Barracks Museum Historical Interpreter and Social Media Coordinator Daryian Kelton shares the tips and tricks of using social media to engage with the public in a recent Zoom session hosted by Crossroads with funding from the Roma Bank Foundation. During the session he discussed the importance of social media and online presence, as well as sharing best practices on engaging with new visitors as well as longtime supporters.
