Statue of Liberty Social Media Hub
In August 2011, the Statue of Liberty National Monument launched its official Facebook page. Since then, thousands have checked-in, shared photographs from their visit and learned interesting historical facts about the Statue. Each day on Facebook has its own theme, including Museum Monday, Way Back Wednesday and EXTRA! EXTRA! Sunday.
In July 2009, the Statue of Liberty live-tweeted the reopening of the Statue's crown. Since then, we have used Twitter to capture and share events taking place on and around Liberty Island.

The Statue's original torch was the first part constructed in 1876. In 1984 it was replaced by a new copper torch covered in 24K gold leaf which is lighted by floodlight at night. The original torch is currently located in the lobby of the monument. Access to the torch has been closed since 1916.
