USE #oregonheritage ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Oregon Heritage asks that you use the tag #oregonheritage when sharing Oregon's history and culture on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The tag will help link the efforts and activities of all of Oregon's historians, preservationists, curators, archivists and heritage fans. It will also maximize the social media efforts of organizations and practitioners that use the tag and help introduce their work to new audiences across disciplines and interests.

For fans of heritage, searching for #oregonheritage will open up the entire universe of heritage activities, artifacts, sites and collections in the state. If enough organizations use the tag the general public will follow. So;
*       sharing a photo of a historic building on Instagram?  - tag it #oregonheritage
*       sharing an update about a cultural event in your community?  - tag it #oregonheritage
*       sharing artifacts from your collection on Facebook? -  tag it #oregonheritage

A diverse group of organization and individuals are already using it to share information about their work and the cool places and collections they see!

Help us at Oregon Heritage, a division of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, build a network celebrating Oregon's history and culture!
