Social media technology is at the core of the Museum of Modern Art’s (MoMA) strategy to engage the public in dialogue about the museum’s collection, exhibitions, education/film programs, special events and modern & contemporary art. By providing a rich and interactive online experience, Social Media is also helping MoMA grow its Membership and build a robust community around its brand.

In his presentation, Richard Entrup will provide an overview of MoMA’s digital media initiatives on the Web and address opportunities and challenges presented by Web 2.0 technologies. This presentation will include a live demonstration and lively discussion of various Web2.0 technologies such as Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, iTunes, and flickr.
