Conversations with Visitors: Social Media and Museums

MuseumsEtc Collection  

Conversations with Visitors: Social Media and Museums brings together for the first time in book form a rich and varied international collection of essays which examine this concept in depth. 

In its 360 pages, Conversations with Visitors shares the experience of some of the world's leading international thinkers and doers in the field of social media and museums. Together, these essays provide sound, practice-based advice on communicating with, involving, challenging, and analysing museum visitors (and non-visitors) through the use of many different types and styles of social media.
