Social Media Seminar

Note: This event is open to AMP individual and institutional members.

If you hear “Periscope” and can only conjure up images of submarines, or think that what happens on Snapchat shouldn’t be discussed in polite company, then our Social Media 201 seminar is for you. Join Alie Cline, Digital Content Strategist at the Blanton Museum of Art, as she breaks down how your museum can use these and other social media apps to engage new audiences. She’ll also discuss which types of users are on each of the various platforms, what types of content people are most likely to engage with, and Austin’s current social media landscape. Just a few weeks before Austin Museum Day, this is a great opportunity to pick up some new social media skills that could help you reach new audiences and attract more visitors.

Thursday, September 3, 1:30 – 3:00pm
