From sharing architectural details via Instragram to organizing advocacy efforts on Facebook to the National Trust's @[null:#ThisPlaceMatters] efforts, social media and historic preservation are an increasingly common pairing. 

How can we use social media to celebrate and advocate for historic preservation? What are some best practices for advocacy on these various platforms, as well as for more passive sharing of ideas and images, like photos of that cool old building you toured last week?

Whether you live for status updates or think Twitter is for the birds, we hope you'll join the conversation, as we chat with Preserve Minneapolis Facebook manager Andrew Yarish and preservationist and blogger Claire VanderEyk.
