Conjointement à l’évolution de plus en plus rapide des nouvelles technologies apparaissent de nouvelles formes de narration, bien souvent expérimentales. Mais qu’en est-il réellement des attentes du public ? Pour répondre à cette question, l’institut d’étude américain Latitude a interviewé 158 early adopters et a rédigé un rapport qui constitue la première phase de son projet The Future of Storytelling.

How Going Viral Has Changed Art | The Creators Project

How Going Viral Has Changed Art | The Creators Project | Museums and Digital Media | Scoop.it
How memes and viral culture have changed the art world, for better or worse. In a time when likes, reblogs, and favorites determine what gets seen and what doesn’t, all cultural products, movies, music, writing, and visual art alike, exist in an economy of attention. Instead of critical regard or placement in the right magazines, the most obvious metric of a piece of art’s success is how many eyeballs it attracts and how quickly it gets spread on the internet.

The Importance of Social Media in Driving People to Your Museum or Visitor-Serving Nonprofit (DATA) |

The Importance of Social Media in Driving People to Your Museum or Visitor-Serving Nonprofit (DATA) | | Museums and Digital Media | Scoop.it

"There’s a lot of conversation about the ROI of social media and confusion about how to explain its importance to executive leaders. Need help? Here’s some data behind how social media drives attendance to visitor-serving organizations (zoos, aquariums, museums, botanic gardens, theaters, etc). The research provided here is courtesy of IMPACTS.


It’s as easy as 1-2-3 (or, rather, the transitive property in mathematics):

 

1. Reputation is a major motivator of intent to visit

2. Social media drives reputation

3. Thus, social media is a driver of visitation"

Four Critical Reasons Why Nonprofit Organizations Must Not “Go Dark” on Social Media on Weekends

Four Critical Reasons Why Nonprofit Organizations Must Not “Go Dark” on Social Media on Weekends | Museums and Digital Media | Scoop.it

By “going dark” on the weekends and evenings (or only posting and monitoring when someone is in the office), a nonprofit organization risks ignoring its audience at the precise moments when the.. precise moments when they may be most apt to communicate, and leaves the organization particularly vulnerable to negative brand sentiment or a possible PR crisis.

 

Here are four, important points to consider regarding the value of social media and weekend social media activity:

 

1. No amount of advertising can make up for a lack of social and earned media.

2. Weekends may be a particularly important time for your audience to connect and engage

3. “Going dark” makes your organization passive on social media and leaves a gaping hole in reputation management

4. Posting over the weekend allows you to remain top-of-mind as a weekend destination (if you are a visitor-serving organization)

Mataró Museum, a
local museum not faraway from Barcelona. One of its
peculiarities is that you can find more information about the paintings with any
mobile devices, thanks to image recognition with augmented reality (AR)
that links to Catalan
