Friday Photo: From Facebook

Daffin House

I have Facebook on the brain because I am preparing to present a workshop on museums and Facebook at the Small Museum Association Conference on February 19th. I have to convince people who work and volunteer at small, often-understaffed museums that establishing a Facebook presence is worth their time and effort. I’m sure some will be more resistant than others, but I hope that the success that Hammond-Harwood House has had in using Facebook to reach out to our local community as well as people around the world will be a convincing example of what social media can do for a historic site. If you haven’t checked out our Facebook page, you can find it here. We post information, questions, and photographs often; this photo of Daffin House, the site for our Garden Party this year, was posted on Tuesday and has already gotten several “Likes.” Do me a favor and go add a few more!
