Museums and Social Networking (Survey)

Posted: Wednesday, 02 February 2011

Student Selina O'Regan is seeking your assistance with a survey as part of her MA in Learning and Visitor Studies in Museums and Galleries.

The objectives of this research are:

  • To find out if Irish museums are using social networking sites.
  • To understand why Irish museums may and may not be using social networking sites.
  • To understand the perceived advantages, opportunities, problems and practicalities for Irish museums using social networking sites.
  • To apply the lessons learned from the research back to the use of social networking sites as a tool for audience development in the broader museum sector.

Click here to take part in an online survey which should take no longer than a few minutes to complete and is applicable to ALL Irish museums including those museums who don't use social networking sites.
