Creator: Smithsonian Institution
Title: Website Records
Dates: 2009-2012
Quantity:
Collection: Accession 13-108
Language of Materials: English
Summary:

This accession consists of records documenting Facebook accounts maintained throughout the Smithsonian Institution (SI). Facebook is a third-party social networking site used for interaction with the general public. In addition to general SI-wide accounts, many of which are managed by the Office of Public Affairs, the accession documents the individual accounts of museums, research centers, and programmatic units throughout SI. Materials include screenshots of a portion of the "Wall," general information screens, photographs, event listings, and notes. The majority of the accounts were captured in March 2012, though a handful were captured as early as November 2011 and as late as August 2012. In general, approximately 2 months of content was captured; however, accounts that included a significant amount of original content were captured going back to the beginning of the account or the last date the account was captured. In the spring of 2012, Facebook began converting institutional accounts from the "Wall" format to the "Timeline" format and examples of both formats can be seen in this accession. Materials are in electronic format.
