I am currently writing a paper for Museums and the Web 2010 entitled "Social media and its effects on the life of a curator", and undertaking a large survey of curators internationally to get a better idea of the answer.
The junction of social media and museums is so often controlled by an institutions web services or IT department, now it’s time to find out what impact it has on curators.
So this is your chance as a curator to let people know what you think. Do you use social media? do you understand it? do you despise it? do you love it? and ultimately how do you think it has impacted on your life as a curator?
You can fill in the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=yUCiYBAmfUh1oGhrbqyqzA_3d_3d
You can remain anonymous if you wish, no one's name will be published.
Could you please pass this on to the curatorial department within your institution?
