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.
