Social media allows people to chronicle their lives like never before, but will Facebook still be around 10, 20, or 30 years from now? What will happen to all your photos, messages, and posts? In order to alleviate those concerns, plan to save those photos and messages now. This workshop provides an overview of the processes that are involved in the long-term preservation of social media posts, pictures, comments, messages, etc. SHSMO archivist Zack Palitzsch will provide tips for downloading files from social media, backing up those files, and preserving information on social media accounts. Online and free, registration required.
