social media

The nation’s first park has taken steps to maintain a presence in 21st century media for the public. As of this month, the 140-year-old park has entered the world of blog posts, podcasts, photos and video on Facebook, Flickr and You Tube adding to its already established presence onTwitter. Park Public Information Chief Al Nash points out that that the park’s Twitter account has more than 13,000 followers, and within the first few days of launching its Facebook Page, the Park was “liked” by nearly 40,000 people. Among the messages being blogged, vlogged and tweeted is daily information about wildlife viewing, road closures and interesting tips for the vacationer as well as park safety. Meanwhile, people concerned about internet safety can be assured that when Yellowstone’s social media entries involve fishing, it is still spelled with an “F.”
