Big Bend National Park has taken considerable strides over the last few years with regard to digital audiences. Two HD format videos have been added to the park website; two additional videos are works in progress. The videos are shot, edited, and produced in-house and cover safety, park orientation, and park resources and resource management.

In addition, the website coordinator has undertaken an extensive overhaul of the park's website to review, restructure, and standardize content to be user-friendly, consistent, and easily navigable. Also, the park now has an approved social media policy, and plans to implement its Facebook presence as soon as feasible.
